Tax Withholding

Overview

Tax Withholding

All payees may request that federal and Maryland state taxes be withheld from their retirement allowance. The Retirement Agency does not withhold State taxes for any State other than Maryland. If you wish to make a change to the amount taxes being withheld from your retirement allowance, please complete Form 766: Federal and Maryland State Tax Withholding Request.

State Retirement Agency staff cannot provide tax advice, therefore if you have specific questions regarding taxes, you may wish to consult with a qualified tax adviser.
