Anyone familiar with Hawaii taxes? Can part year residents still exclude their state government pensions? I cant find the place for it anywhere!

Ive got a client thats been a full year HI resident for multiple years, but in August 2016 she moved to Oregon (yes, shes just now bringing in 2016 stuff...don't get me started!).  

Previous years when she was a full year resident, excluding the state gov pension was pretty clear....I cant find a place to do that on a part year return.    

Do they not get that same exclusion if they dont live there all year?

The HI return instructions have been less than helpful.  The section on government pension that are non taxable, doesn't differentiate between resident and part year at all. The closest I can find is that it just says to type on how much was taxable for the period of being a resident, I can put -0- there but that doesn't show "why" its not taxable.

Ive been googling around and found one other post asking my same question in TurboTax, but they didnt get an answer either.

We do know someone who is familiar with Hawaii taxes. She hasn't been around for a while. I don't think we want to call her.

The more I know, the more I don't know.

I was thinking about her  (was it Laura?), but I know I haven't seen her around her in a long time.  Peter in Hawaii used to be around too, but he didnt seem to be on his game the last few times he posted.

Nah, I wouldn't try to *call* her.

I will lei odds that you would allocate the income to Hawaii for the months that they lived there and it would be excluded to that amount. I kona think I am right, but I am not shore.

I think page 12 says to exclude the pensions "Examples of Income You Do Not Report"
