This bill reduces the tax burden on federal benefits for millions of seniors and allows them to receive the full compensation they were promised.

Washington, DC 20515

Dear Congressman Massie:

On behalf of the 2.1 million members of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC),
I am writing in support of the Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act, H.R. 3206. This legislation
will help millions of seniors nationwide by excluding tier I railroad retirement benefits and
Social Security benefits when calculating annual gross income.

Every year, millions of seniors become eligible for either Social Security or tier I railroad
retirement benefits. After working for decades, paying taxes on their hard-earned income to fund
these federal programs, some seniors are forced to pay income tax on the benefits they receive
from the federal government. Taxing benefits which were created from already taxed funds is
nonsensical and curtails retirement benefits seniors have been promised. Seniors deserve to reap
the full benefits of their hard work from career-long contributions to Social Security and the
Railroad Retirement Plan.

The Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act will amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to
remove the inclusion of tier I railroad retirement benefits and Social Security benefits in an
individual’s gross income. As this legislation takes effect, seniors will notice their tax liability is
significantly reduced. Seniors will no longer be burdened unnecessary taxes on their federally
earned benefits.

As an organization committed to representing seniors, AMAC supports efforts to protect our
members. We applaud you, Congressman Massie, for providing a solution to help seniors receive
the full federal benefits they were promised. AMAC is pleased to offer our organization’s full
support to the Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act.

This would be great however we all know that this current administration will not go for it. We need President Trump back in office.

Nice idea, but just like all the other proposals being forth this year by the House Republicans, this bill will never make it through the Democrat controlled Senate. Schumer isn’t even bothering to bring any of the House passed bills to the floor for discuss, much less a vote up or down. Nor would this bill ever survive a veto by Joe Biden should it ever reach his desk. Democrats are desperate to squeeze every cent out of the American public, which is what the 87,000 new IRS agents are for. So any sort of tax reform that keeps money in the pockets of the American citizens is DOA. However, should by some miracle the Democrats do a bad job of cheating and manipulation in the next election and a Republican gets to occupy the White House again, along with Republicans controlling both chambers of Congress, this proposal should be revived and passed ASAP.

One thing that we do have (at the moment) in the People’s Republic of Illinois is that no retirement income (for example, Social Security payments; defined benefit pensions; defined contribution pensions including distributions from either 401(k) plans or IRAs) is subject to Illinois income tax.

The Illinois legislature is always sniffing around looking for additional sources of revenue but so far, it has been ‘hands off’ retirement income.
