Veterans Homestead Exemption

If you are 100% service related disabled, you may be entitled to a reduction.

Honorably discharged Veterans, regardless of income, who have a total (100%) disability rating, or a total (100%) disability rating for compensation based on individual employability, for a service-connected disability or combination of service-connected disabilities from the Department of Veterans Affairs qualify for a higher benefit under the Homestead Exemption.

Senate Bill 10, passed by the General Assembly in December 2015, allows the Veterans described above to shield up to $50,000 of the market value of their home from taxation.

A disabled Veteran submitting an application under this statute must fill out the form DTE 105I and provide a letter or other written confirmation from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs showing they meet the requirements.
