Property Tax Exemption for Qualifying Disabled Veterans and Gold Star Spouses

Qualified Disabled Veterans and Gold Star Spouses can receive 50% of the first 200,000 value of their home value exempted from their property tax. This exemption is for primary residences owned and occupied since 1 January of the year in which the Veteran or Gold Star Spouse is applying.

Qualifying Disabled Veteran applicants must have an honorable discharge and established a service-connected disability that has been rated by the United States Department of Homeland Security, or the Department of the Army, Navy or Air Force. Individuals being compensated at 100% rate due to individual unemployability do not qualify for this exemption.

Gold Star Spouse applicants must be a surviving spouse of a United States Armed Forces service member who died in the line of duty and the spouse received a death gratuity from the Department of Defense, or a surviving spouse of a veteran whose death resulted from a service-related injury or disease as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs and who is receiving dependency indemnity compensation awarded by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
