SUPPORT THE EXEMPTION OF MILITARY RETIREMENT PAY FROM STATE TAXATION
There are two pieces of state legislation in the 2021 session that would benefit APG and our community by supporting military retirees relocating to our region for employment at APG or surrounding businesses. These retirees have unique technical skills and existing security clearances. Maryland is competing for these individuals with other states that offer complete or more significant military retirement tax exemptions.
