Important Notice for IRAs
A Change to Taxation of Retirement Income in the State of Iowa
Effective January 1, 2023, Iowa taxpayers will catch a break on the state taxes paid on “retirement” income. The new law exempts Iowa taxation on all “retirement income” for those who are disabled or 55+ years old. It also exempts retirement income received by surviving spouses. Retirement income includes, but not limited to:
- 401(k), 403(b), and Individual 401(k) Plan Distributions
- IRA Distributions
- Deferred Compensation Plans
- Pensions (Government & Private)
Client Note: For those of you that currently request withholding Iowa taxes from your IRA distributions, you will want to work with your accountant to determine if you will want to continue withholding. If you choose to change or discontinue state withholding from your IRA distribution in 2023 and beyond, please contact us as soon as possible at 800-423-1602.
