SergeantQ, September 24, 2015 in Veterans Benefits State & Federal
FYI: Did you all hear that there was a new law passed for any disabled veteran 70% or higher? Yep! If you are 70% or higher, and your state participates, you don't have to pay property taxes anymore. Yep!
We (my husband is 70%) got our letter in the mail the other day and I'm been turning kart wheels and back flips ever since. Google your local chief county assessment office and do a search for the new information on their website.
Below, is the information that showed up on our county website. I'm in Illinois. Good luck and go get it! You deserve it!
Looks to be a Illinois thing. Wisconsin is still 100% I belive...
Wisconsin is still 100%, glad to hear Illinois is doing more. I know Alaska was 50% or higher, although property taxes are already pretty low in all but a few areas.
Georgia is 100%. The laws vary state by state and in some states county by county. To my knowledge, there are no federal laws governing real estate property tax exemptions.
Yea..we need this nationwide. I am 100% and I get about a 30% exemption.
Texas is 100% with homestead filed & the requirement is you lived there 1 year prior....before I was 100% we got the first 12000.00 exemption at 50% but I think a veteran had to be 50% or more to get the exemption, I think it depends on the state & county you live in ?
It would be worth checking into with your state & county in which you live check with your local county tax assessor office.
