Summary: Maine offers special benefits for its military Service members and Veterans including a Homestead Exemption, Tax Exemptions, Employment Assistance, Employment Preference, Tuition Aid Grant, State Parks and Campground, Special Vehicle License Plates, as well as Hunting and Fishing Privileges. Eligibility for some benefits may depend on residency, military component and disability status.

State Benefit Highlights and Eligibility

State Taxes:

State Tax Benefit: None.

Retirement Income Taxes: You and your Spouse (if married) may each deduct up to $6,000 of eligible pension income that is included in your federal adjusted gross income. Except for military pension benefits, the $6,000 cap must be reduced by any Social Security and Railroad Retirement benefits received, whether taxable or not. Deductible pension income includes state, federal and military pension benefits, as well as retirement benefits received from employee retirement plans. A new law amends the income tax subtraction modification for certain retirement benefits to raise the $6,000 limit to $10,000. The subtraction modification is expanded to include all federally taxable pension income, annuity income and individual retirement account distributions, except pick-up contributions for which a deduction has been allowed. The law applies to tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2014.

Retired Military Pay: Follows federal tax rules.

Military Disability Retired Pay: Retirees who entered the military before September 24, 1975, and members receiving disability retirements based on combat injuries or who could receive disability payments from the VA are covered by laws giving disability broad exemption from federal income tax. Most military retired pay based on service-related disabilities also is free from federal income tax, but there is no guarantee of total protection.

VA Disability Dependency and Indemnity Compensation: Not subject to federal or state taxes.

Military SBP/ RCSBP/RSFPP: Generally subject to state taxes for those states with income tax. Check with state department of revenue office.
