For disabled veterans who qualify, 50 percent of the first $200,000 of actual value of the veteran’s primary residence is exempted. The state will reimburse the county treasurer for the lost revenue. A disabled Veteran exemption is available to those applicants who:
sustained a service-connected disability while serving on active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States. This includes members of the National Guard and Reserves who sustained their injury during a period in which they were called to active duty.
were honorably discharged, AND
were rated by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs as service-connected one hundred percent “permanent and total” disabled, pursuant to a law and regulation administered by the department, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, or the Department of the Army, Navy or Air Force.
VA unemployability awards do not meet the requirement for determining an applicant’s eligibility.
The applicant must have owned and occupied the home as his or her primary residence since January 1 of the year of application; however, limited exceptions to the ownership and occupant requirements are detailed in the eligibility requirements section of the application. Owners of multiple residences may only designate one property as their primary residence. The application deadline is July 1.
