The Disabled Veterans program provides a market value exclusion for property tax purposes for the homestead property of an honorably discharged veteran who has a service-connected disability rating of 70 percent or higher, as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
The annual verification letter from the Veteran's Administration must accompany the application. Disabled Veterans with a rating of 70 percent must re-apply annually.
Qualifying veterans who are 70 percent disabled or more are eligible for a maximum exclusion of $150,000. Qualifying veterans who are 100 percent disabled are eligible for a maximum $300,000 market value exclusion.
Complete the application and attach all proper documentation. Mail the application and the required documentation to the Assessor’s Office by July 1 of the current year to be eligible for exclusion in the next payable tax year.
There are separate applications for Veterans with Total and Permanent Disability and for Veterans with 70 Percent or More Disability.
