A veteran who is disabled, 65 or older, and owns homestead property may qualify for a property tax discount based on their percentage of disability. To be eligible, you must have been honorably discharged from military service and be partially disabled with a permanent service-connected disability, at least part of which is combat-related.
This discount is in addition to any other exemptions veterans now receive.
Applications for the discount should be made to the property appraiser in the county where the veteran’s homestead property is located. The Department of Revenue’s role in implementation of the discount is limited to providing aid and assistance to the property appraiser.
For additional information, please see the Department’s Property Tax Informational Bulletin titled Veterans Disabled Due to Combat Injury: Homestead Property Tax Discount.
