Just wanted to put this post out there because it genuinely took me as a shock. Luckily, it shouldn't have a huge effect on me, but it really might for some.

So as most know, each state has different benefits given to vets with disabilities and most notably is that many states give property exemption for 100% P&T or TDIU vets. See link here for info:



This is all fine and good, but I just applied for my exemption in my state only to learn that I would see no benefit from it until September 2021. The reason behind this is that our state is bass ackwards and pays property taxes in "arrears". So September 2020 and March 2021, I will actually be paying my 2019 property taxes, since my application will for some reason only begin for the 2020 property taxes that are to be paid September 2021 and March 2022. 

Maybe this all makes sense to you all, and I hate to bite the hand that feeds, but I will be contacting as many state government officials that I can to try to get this changed so that it is effective upon application. I can afford to pay until September 2021, but what about someone who had to go on TDIU suddenly or for a widow of a vet that passed from a service connected injury? 

So moral of the story is, check on all of your bennies because some of them may still be just out of reach.

I had the same issue in my state.  Its the same for social security disability (you have a wating period), then you are paid "in arrears".  Ditto for VA disability.  If your effective date is April 9, you dont receive any money until June 1.  (comp is paid "in arrears", and begins on the first day of the month FOLLOWING your effective date, but you dont get paid until that month is over with, so your first check would be June 1).

If you got your property tax exemption on a certain month  say June 1st and you have to wait a complete year before the county takes the property tax exemption   if you homestead you should get all the tax $$ you paid in  at the time you were exempt    for the entire year or all the  property taxes you paid..other wise whats the exemption for?

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
