Railroad Retirement Worksheet

Income Worksheet:

TaxSlayer incorrectly includes RR retirement benefits in the retirement exclusion. But RR retirement benefits are not taxable in any state, thus has its own exclusion line. Consequently, other retirement exclusions are capped at the 20K/24K limit prematurely. This calculator removes the taxable portions of Tier 1 and Tier 2 RR benefits from the CO retirement amount and totals those RR retirement amounts, all to be entered on the CO "Subtractions from income" page.

NOTE: If the person(s) with RR retirement benefits have not reached the maximum pension exclusion (see the CO Pension Exclusion Worksheet), the outcome will be correct, no change is necessary and you do not need to use this worksheet.
