Real property tax exemptions are usually a form filled out at your local property tax office. The VA only certifies once a year so it you need something from VA should ask them to give it to you.

Pete,

I went to the County Director of Veterans Affairs here in Jan., filled all the papers out had them notarized by the tax office-made a call to the dirctor the other day to see what is taking so long, they said they sent it to Indiantown Gap and they still needed another paper from the their office- in the meantime my payments on the house are an extra 198 a month till they get it together.....but I'm used to that :mellow: and if they only certify once a year he never told me that which he should have-so in the meantime can you apply to recoup the taxes youre paying after youre exempt? Thanks MrsVet

You have to check with the appraisal office that sends out your tax statements. In Texas you can be refunded but all states are not the same.

Good Luck

Pete53,

Been in bed all summer with back injury and broke my wrist had surgery -feeling better/ so thought I would update on theproperty tax exemption here-turns out we still havent gotten it, because the county here in PA counts your retro payment as income-even though the IRS doesnt- so have to wait till Jan 2011 and refile again - is what the Director of Veterans Affairs told me here. Sound right to you?

Thanks for all your input all these years-

Oh and by the way, the VA finally recognized the hypertension claim secondary to PTSD- they told me after the final decision that "we checked the action satisfied the appeal on all issues"-but they're were only three issues and that was still under appeal, and they told me I had to reopen it all over I knew that couldnt be, because they are the ones who seperated it to begin with, then decided to drop it before they even got the CP exam and so on.....and guess who proved them wrong......:tongue: have claim in for the ODC now we are missing 4 years of retro when they finally decided it...now have to prove that but have all the original evidence back to 98..Take care MrsVet

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
