Homestead Exemption

Veterans who are rated by the VA as 100 percent permanently and totally disabled due to a service-connected disability, are eligible for expanded Homestead Exemption property tax relief on their primary residential home. Instead of the $25,000 allowed for other eligible 65-and-older or permanently disabled applicants, eligible Veterans can exempt $50,000 of the assessed value of their primary residential home from property taxes, meaning that a home valued at $150,000 will only be taxed at a value of $100,000. These Veterans are also exempt from the $30,000 limit on annual income applied to other applicants; eligible Veterans have no limit on their annual income.

Eligibility

  • Veterans rated by the VA as 100 percent disabled due to a service-connected disability, without regard to annual income, and their surviving spouses who occupy the same home as the eligible Veteran.
  • The expanded Homestead Exemption applies to tax years 2014 and forward.
