Governor Eric Holcomb, a Navy veteran, has asked the Indiana Legion and other veterans organizations to stand with him as he fights to exempt all retired military pay from state income tax.
Additionally, the current tax deduction of $5,000 on current military pay may be at risk of being eliminated by the Indiana General Assembly.
A resolution passed by the Department Executive Committee Meeting in regular session assembled in Indianapolis on Sunday, April 9, 2017, positions The American Legion, Department of Indiana to work with Governor Holcomb on this endeavor and make Indiana a better place for our military service members and retirees.
Therefore, The American Legion is calling on all our members, family and friends to contact their state legislators, now before it's too late.
New, user-friendly, advocacy software has recently been introduced to the department website at www.indianalegion.org/legislative. This new tool allows our members to become advocates on veterans issues, simply by entering their information. A list of your elected officials in your area are generated, and pre-drafted letters supporting issues concerning veterans can be sent at the click of a button.
Visit www.indianalegion.org/legislative to take action and spread the word throughout our Hoosier Legion community.
Together, we change lives for Veterans, their families and their communities.
