Is This Something New?


Recommended Posts

This letter shows your service history and some VA benefits information. You can customize this letter and use it for many things, including to apply for housing assistance, civil service jobs, and state or local property and "car tax relief".

OK, I knew about the property tax exemption when buying a home, but I never heard of any tax relief if a veteran buys a car. I found this when I was trying to check on letter generation on VA.gov.

I read that some States that have personal property taxes, like a yearly tax on your vehicle(s), they exempt "one" vehicle from that annual property tax.  The State of Virginia is one.

My State, Wisconsin, does not have personal property tax, but does have real estate property tax, which is returned when you do your income taxes each year, if you are 100% or payed as 100% Disable Veteran.

Check your States, Veterans, you never know,

Each state is different.  Florida has total property tax exemption  for 100% P&T vets.  We get DL free and almost free tags.  We represent a tiny minority now days so why not?

Alabama also grants a full exemption on homestead taxes for permanently and totally disabled veterans, plus a partial tax exemption on vehicle registration.

When I got my 100% P&T letter the effective date was five years earlier. I visited the tax office and asked if they could retroactively reimburse me for the taxes I paid during that time. They said they could not. They indicated having to tell SSDI recipients the same thing. I was told I could talk with my state representative and ask if they could write a law allowing for retroactive reimbursement. Oof...

I wish Indiana would get on board with the full exemption that some states have. We get $24,960 off the assessed value of our homes here and property taxes here are pretty high. There's an additional $14,000 but the assessed value has to be under $200,000.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
