Veterans of the United States armed forces with a service-connected disability 50 percent or greater
Veterans who are retired or have been honorably discharged
The surviving spouse of a deceased qualifying veteran whom remains unmarried
How it works:
The credit maxes out at $150,000 in value. The amount credited to your property is based on the disability or unemployability rating of the disabled veteran.
A veteran with an 80 percent disability rating would receive a credit up to the first $120,000 in value on the property.
150,000 x .80 = 120,000
Where to start:
If it is your first time applying your local assessor will need a copy of your DD- 214 as well as the appropriate documentation to support your percentage of service-connected disability. All of this information will remain confidential.
Along with the DD-214 and service-connected documentation, an application will need to be submitted to your local assessor. Click here for the application: Disabled Veteran Credit Application
