Disabled Veterans Exemption

 The Disabled Veterans' Homeowner Exemption provides an annual reduction in a property's equalized assessed value (EAV) on the primary residence occupied by a disabled veteran on January 1 of the assessment year.

The amount of the exemption each year depends on the percentage of the disabled veteran's service-connected disability as certified by the U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs.  
A disabled veteran with at least:
  • 70% service-connected disability is exempt from all property taxes.  
  • 50% to 69% service-connected disability will receive an annual $5,000 reduction in the equalized assessed value (EAV) of their property.
  • 30% to 49% will receive an annual $2,500 reduction in the EAV of their property. 
     
A disabled veteran must apply for this exemption each year. To complete the Disabled Veterans’ Exemption application, the following is needed:

  1. First time applicants need to provide a certified Department of Defense form DD214.
  2. Disability Certification Letter from the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs dated no earlier than 2015.
  3. Deed to the property.
  4. A surviving spouse, as long as the spouse does not remarry, applying for the first time or transferring the exemption to a new address will also need to provide the disabled veteran’s death certificate. 

A disabled veteran must apply for this exemption each year.
Please note: For 2014 and years prior, you need to have a service connected disability as certified by the U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs of at least 50%. Please call 847-358-6164 with any questions.
