Real Estate Tax Exemption
The Virginia General Assembly enacted on April 6, 2011, legislation which exempts from real property taxation the principal residence of veterans that have a 100% service-connected, permanent, and total disability. The exemption is effective as of January 1, 2011 and also extends to the surviving spouse, if the veteran’s death occurred on or after January 1, 2011.
Application for Exemption for Real Estate Taxes is required and certain documentation must be provided; however, the application is generally a one-time process and does not need to be re-filed annually, unless the veteran’s principal place of residence changes.
