Louisiana allows for a subtraction on your state return for retirement benefits from certain retirement systems such as LA State Employees Retirement Benefits, LA State Teachers Retirement Benefits, Federal Retirement Benefits, and Other Retirement Systems.
Taxpayers age 65 or older may exempt up to $6,000 of their annual retirement income from Louisiana if they file as Single, Head of Household, Married Filing Separately or as a Qualifying Widow(er).
If you file as Married Filing Jointly and you are both 65 or older, you are both allowed to exclude up to $6,000 each for annual retirement benefits received.
