2021 Deadline Has Been Extended to May 17

 Qualifications may change on yearly basis.

Below are the 2021 qualifications.

You must file the application with our office between January 1 and May 17.

The Veterans Property Tax Reduction benefit reduces property taxes for qualified 100% service-connected disabled veterans.

If you qualify, the property taxes on your home and up to one acre of land may be reduced by as much as $1,320. The program doesn’t have an income limit.

Once granted, a surviving spouse can use this benefit, but it isn’t transferable to a new property after the death of the qualifying veteran.
