The Disabled Veteran’s Property Tax Credit is available to veterans of the United States Armed Forces with a disability of 50% or greater.
If eligible, the credit may reduce the taxable value of a homestead. A homestead can include a house, the land the house is on, and/or other buildings on the same land. If a qualified veteran moves to a different homestead, the credit can be applied to the new property.
Eligibility: To be eligible for this program, you must:
- Be a disabled veteran of the United States Armed Forces with an armed forces service-connected disability of 50% or greater in the year for which the application is made.
- Your extra-scheduler rating, to include individual unemployability, may bring the total disability rating to 100%, as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
- Have received an honorable discharge or be retired from the United States Armed Forces.
- Reside on and be invested in the property.
If two disabled veterans are married and living together, the combined credits may not exceed 100% of $8,100 of taxable value of the homestead. In the event of the applicant’s death, the spouse is eligible for the credit. The spouse who is receiving United States Department of Veterans Affairs dependency and indemnity compensation receives 100% of the credit, until remarried.
