There are some 19 states that do not conform to federal law with regard to taxation of the Roth IRA.

Ah, which states are these? I don't believe Georgia is one, since I haven't heard anyone around here carping about it, but it would be nice to know.

Well, in March they were: AL, AZ, AR, GA, HI, ID, IN, IA, KY, ME, MA, MN, MS, NJ, NC, OR, SC, WV, WI and DC. Since then, legislation has been introduced in a number of these states to have their taxes agree with the federal regarding Roth IRAs. KY is one, but I don't know any others. If you want info about GA, you'll have to ask your states's department of taxation.
