Got my first W2 as a retire and I was wondering if pension checks get lumped together with paychecks, and are included in box 1 as income. I retired in March 2013 and my W2 seems too high if it doesn't include my pension checks. I live in NY where pensions are not taxed so I need to determine how much of income on W2 is attributed to pay and how much to pension. Thanks !!!
