Veterans' Exemption

The Veteran's Exemption allows for an exemption of $4,000 for qualifying claimants. A Veterans' Exemption claim form must be completed and filed annually by February 15 with the Assessor. Claims filed February 16 - December 10 may receive a partial exemption for that year.

In addition to the veteran, qualifying claimants include parents and the unmarried surviving spouse of a deceased veteran. The maximum value of a property that can be owned to receive this exemption is $5,000 for an unmarried veteran or parent of a deceased veteran, or $10,000 for a married veteran, parents of a deceased veteran, or unmarried spouse of a deceased veteran.

This exemption may be claimed in addition to the Homeowner's Exemption; it must be filed for a different property.
