  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

FYI State Property Tax Exemption for 100% P&T


Recommended Posts

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:

https://www.military.com/benefits/veteran-state-benefits/state-veterans-benefits-directory.html

 

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?

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
