  • Tax Information for Retirees

    Jan 28, 2019, 2:26 PM By MOSERS

    If you are receiving a retirement check from the state of Missouri are you required to claim it on your state tax income tax return as income?

    Yes, you are required to claim your MOSERS benefits on your state taxes if you are a Missouri resident. (If you are not a Missouri resident, contact your state department of revenue or a qualified tax advisor for the answer to this question.) Below is some additional information that MOSERS retirees often need when filing their taxes:

    1. MOSERS is a public defined benefit (DB) pension plan and the benefit you receive through MOSERS is considered a “public pension”.
    2. MOSERS withholds state taxes only for Missouri residents.
    3. As long as you reside in Missouri, your retirement benefits are subject to Missouri state income tax and federal tax. However, you may qualify for the Missouri state tax Public Pension Exemption on your Missouri state tax return.
    4. We have mailed 1099-R tax forms to all retirees/benefit recipients.

  • 1099-R Tax Form

    Jan 23, 2019, 8:44 AM By MOSERS

    We received two questions about 1099-Rs recently:

    1. When will 2018 1099-R be on-line?
    2. Why can I not receive/access my 1099R online? It would seem to me that it would save thousands of dollars.

    You can access an electronic copy of your 1099-R after we have mailed it, which will be by the end of January. Simply log in through myMOSERS to your MOSERS Member Homepage and you will find it listed under Personal Information. Watch our website for more information.

    We appreciate your comment indicating you would be ok getting it online only and that it would save money. We have taken that approach with our other publications and correspondence - based on individual member preference. The 1099-R is one document that we still make available to all retirees both in hard copy and online. The decision to do so is based on our experience with retiree preference and needs. However, we will certainly take your suggestion into consideration for future planning.
