This bill revises the current veteran's total property tax exemption provided to totally disabled, honorably-discharged wartime veterans who received a 100% service-related disability during their wartime service in the United States Armed Forces. Under the current law, veterans who did not receive a 100% service-related disability, but who were partially disabled during their service, are not eligible to receive a proportional property tax exemption. The bill would allow all honorably-discharged wartime veterans who received a service-related permanent disability determination resulting from their wartime service in the United States Armed Forces, including those who received a 100% disability determination, to receive a property tax exemption in the proportional amount of their service-related disability, as declared by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. A veteran who was determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to have a 100% service-related disability would still receive a 100% property tax exemption under the statute. However, veterans who received a service-related, wartime permanent disability of less than 100%, as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs would become eligible under the bill to receive a partial property tax exemption, the amount of which would be equal to the degree of their service-connected, wartime service permanent disability as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
