  1. State Property Tax exemptions

    In Tennessee, the maximum market value on which tax relief is calculated will be on the first $100,000.00 of your primary residence. The previous value limit was the $175,000.00. When I went in this year to make my payment, I was told that Tennessee is trying to get rid of any property tax relief period. They have no idea what it will be for this coming tax year.Another slap in the face for everyone...so sad..so sad.
  2. State Property Tax Exemptions for Vets

    Here is the information on Tennessee's new Tax Relief rules for Disabled Veterans/Widow(ER) for 2015. This is totally a disgrace to what Tennessee is doing. The first two pages are from Tennessee's web site. The third page is a copy of the letter that I was sent. To show you just how "cheap" Tennessee was in mailing out these notices, please just look at the top of the letter. No, I did not copy this letter on a used sheet of paper. It appears that they used, or may I say, "re-used" paper that was already printed on to mail out to us. Every year I get a tax relief notice from the State of Tennessee and have to go in and have to re-submit that I still qualify as a widow of a 100% P & T Veteran. When I went in to pay, I was told that this was only good for a year and that Tennessee is trying to eliminate all tax relief. They had no idea what would happen next year.

    Tonio, I saved the VA link, but it turned out blue. Just go to the left of the page and click on Life Insurance. Then you will again see to the left the VGLI and then below it some is the S-DVI link. Let me know if this works. Celia

    Sorry, oops...it went on and posted my reply. What I was going to say is that I hope I have not told you wrong. The web site can explain so much more than I ever could. I hope this helps in some small small way, Tonio. I am just the messenger and hope that I did not deliver the message incorrectly. God Bless! Celia

    Tonio, don't take this to the bank, but S-DVI is insurance for Veterans with service-connected disabilities. You can apply within 2 years of the date that VA granted your new service-connected disability. The VGLI is a life insurance program that allows you to convert your full time SGLI coverage to a renewable term life insurance. You can go on to VA's web site and it will give you all of the details. I just googled it and it tool me to VA's site. Just bear in mind that I have never been in the service and I hope that

    Tonio, it sure does feel good to have your ID in your hands, doesn't it! I am glad you got that taken care of. We lived 2 hours away from a base, so when we went to get our cards 2 years ago, we just went to the National Guard Armory and got our IDs. It took us longer to drive there than it did to get the cards printed up. I am so glad that things are looking up for you and you know that God is so good and watching over you! God Bless! Celia
