The County offers services to assist Veteran Homeowners with exemptions.

Homeowner Exemption — the Homeowner Exemption provides tax relief by reducing the equalized assess valuation of an eligible residence.

Returning Veterans’ Exemption – Veterans returning from active duty in armed conflict are eligible to receive a $5,000 reduction in the equalized assessed value of their property only for each taxable year in which they return.

Disabled Veterans’ Exemption – Veterans with a service connected disability as certified by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs are eligible for this annual exemption.  A disability of at least 70 percent is eligible for a $5,000 exemption in equalized assessed value (EAV). A disability of at least 50 percent, but less than 69 percent is eligible for a $2,500 reduction in EAV.
