The Disabled Veterans’ Homeowner Exemption provides an annual reduction in a property’s equalized assessed value (EAV) on the primary residence occupied by a disabled veteran on January 1 of the assessment year.

The amount of the exemption each year depends on the percentage of the disabled veteran’s service-connected disability as certified by the U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

A disabled veteran with at least:

  • 70% service-connected disability is exempt from all property taxes.
  • 50% to 69% service-connected disability will receive an annual $5,000 reduction in the (EAV) of their property.
  • 30% to 49% will receive an annual $2,500 reduction in the EAV of their property.


  • A disabled veteran must apply for this exemption each year. To complete the Disabled Veterans’ Exemption application, the following is needed:
  • First time applicants need to provide a certified Department of Defense form DD214.
  • Disability Certification Letter from the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs dated no earlier than 2021.
  • Deed to the property.
  • A surviving spouse, as long as the spouse does not remarry, applying for the first time or transferring the exemption to a new address will also need to provide the disabled veteran’s death certificate.
