Arizona Exempts Social Security from Income Tax

Social Security Benefits Not Taxed in AZ


Woman with Social Security Check

If you receive Social Security, that income is not taxed on your personal tax return in Arizona.

April 2012

Arizona does not tax:

  • Interest from U.S. Government obligations
  • Social security retirement benefits received under Title II of the Social Security Act
  • Benefits received under the Railroad Retirement Act
  • Active duty military pay
  • Pay received for active service as a reservist or a National Guard member

Arizona does tax income from pensions and other sources earned outside the state.

For specific questions about your income taxes in Arizona, visit the Arizona Department of Revenue online or call them.
