Tax Changes Several changes in the Iowa state income tax law take effect this year. 1. The Iowa income tax on social security payments ends this year. The tax has been phased out over the last several years and is 0 for 2014. 2.

A tax credit of $2,500 for adopting a child goes into effect this year. 4. The tax credit for child care has been expanded to include more people. 5. Military retirement pay is also exempt from the Iowa income tax beginning in 2014. An Honor to Serve As we head into the new year and a new legislative session, I cannotk p, but think about what an honor it is to serve the pe rr-efi and Madison Counties. I have been very fortunate to have so many friends who have stepped up to help in my campaigns. I know that not everyone is going to agree with me on every vote I make, but I assure you I am doing what I think best for the people of our district and the State of Iowa. When you make hundreds of votes, nearly anyone will find some that he or she will disagree with. As always, feet free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at or 515-281-3371.
