Veteran Tax Exemption

The Alternative Veteran’s Exemption provides a property tax exemption of 15% of assessed value to veteran homeowner’s who served during wartime and an additional 10% to those who served in a combat zone. There is an additional exemption for disabled veterans that is equal to one half of their service connected disability rating. The exemption is off the County and Land Tax bill (not the School tax- that is a separate law and up to each school district in NYS to grant or deny).

March 1st is the deadline!!! The exemption will be effective July 1st (the next tax cycle) and it is NOT retroactive.

See your county or town assessor for details and to apply.
