Tax-Deferring Optional Service Purchases

Members of the General Assembly Retirement System (GARS) have always been able to purchase optional service credit available to them on a post-tax basis, but now they can tax-defer these purchases through payroll deduction or a rollover. Members are then able to delay taxation until retirement. This brochure provides general information about the Tax-Deferral Option.
