Q. I’ve been in the Mississippi National Guard since 2001 and in the military since 1993, so I’ve got a few years behind me. I was hurt on active duty and didn’t file the paperwork. Now I’m on the verge of being kicked out of the Guard and I will also lose my technician job. I’ve heard that I will be able to medically retire from the tech job if that happens. Is the retirement pay from the tech job taxable?
A. Yes, it is taxable.
