Why are state retirement pickup contributions a required addition to my Maryland income?

Pickup contributions to a state retirement or a pension system member are stated separately on your Form W-2 (W2). The amount entered as an addition should match any amounts entered in Box 14 that are labeled as "STPICKUP".

The tax on this portion of your wages is deferred for federal purposes, but unfortunately not for state purposes. For more information, see Administrative Release 21 .
