NC uses federal AGI as the starting point. A quick look at the NC instructions does not show any adjustments allowed to the AGI for TSP or any other type of defined contribution plan. It appears that any TSP withdrawals are taxed by NC as income same as federal.
For people who have 5+ years of federal service befor 1989, csrs pension and tsp withdrawals I believe are not taxed under Bailey decision. My question is whether surviving spouse tsp withdrawals would continue to receive the same treatment.
