Is the housing allowance taxable income for state taxes?

Is the housing allowance taxable income for state tax purposes? thank you!


Answer

Generally, housing allowance payments are exempt from most state's income tax. However, I received a comment from Mark in PA that said it was not exempt from taxes in his state...so be sure and check you state's income tax requirements.

Hope this helps,
