Re: [viktoremski] Paying state income taxes in the USA

Hi This is a really old message thread!
Notify the pension administrator of your Mexico address as well as any U.S. post box if you use one. Instruct them not to withhold CA tax from your proceeds.
File and pay your annual federal tax return. No obligation to file CA return.
I had an interesting situation that confirms this information.
Early in retirement while living in Tijuana, I commuted and worked part-time for the San Diego Padres. Since those earnings were in the US, I filed and sent copy of my 1040 to Sacramento. I paid CA tax only on the Padres income and not my government pension. After I quit working, I no longer filed CA. Hope this helps.
