Veterans Property Tax Exemptions

Vet Flyer 

Veterans and their surviving spouses may be eligible for an exemption on local county, city, town, village, and/or school property taxes. Additional deductions may apply for combat and disabled veterans. In order to determine eligibility, a copy of the veteran’s separation papers/DD214 must be presented to the assessor. Every veteran homeowner is urged to contact their local assessor to determine the exemptions for which they qualify and to ensure that they are properly applied to their property's assessment.
