I have mixed emotions about this. On one hand, I'd absolutely love to have my military pension exempt from state income tax. (I live in VT, a high income tax state.) On the other hand, if it ever came down to a choice, I'd prefer to see the exemption given to active duty troops, particularly junior enlisted who need the break a helluva lot more than I do.

IIRC, when I lived in MD there was an exemption on a portion of military retired pay but it only applied to enlisted folks.

Pennsylvania exempts all retirement income, I believe, even 401k withdrawals.

For the last few years Money Magazine rates Delaware as the 2nd cheapest place to retire, all things considered (income tax, property tax, sales tax, cost of living). Alaska is predictably #1 due to its oil revenue profit sharing with its citizens.
