Disabled Veteran & Surviving Spouse Exclusion

Honorably discharged disabled veterans, or their unmarried surviving spouses, may be eligible for a reduction in property tax on their permanent residence.

The veteran must have a service-connected permanent and total disability that existed as of January 1 of the year in which application is made, or has received benefits for specially adapted housing under 38 U.S.C. 2101.  

If applicant qualifies, the first $45,000 of assessed value of their permanent residence is excluded from taxation. To apply, file FORM AV9 with the tax office by June 1, along with FORM NCDVA-9 certified by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
