The eligibility requirements for the original $25,000 homestead exemption must be met. Any ex-service member disabled at least 10% in war or by service-connected misfortune is entitled to a $5,000 exemption. If filing for the first time, please present a certificate from the United States Government or Veterans Administration.  Your letters must be dated within the year prior to your application.

 

Also, widows of veterans who were disabled with a service connected disability of 10% or more qualify for this exemption, if they were married more than 5 years to the disabled veteran. The widow must provide proof of marriage and their spouse’s disability from the Veterans Administration or the United States Government.
