Property tax exemption proposed for disabled veterans in Ohio

Under new legislation introduced in the Ohio Legislature, veterans disabled in the line of duty may be exempt from paying property taxes.

The proposed bill to aid veterans is similar to laws already in place in 30 other states across the country which provide tax relief to disabled vets. To qualify for the exemption, disabled veterans would have to have been injured, or had an injury aggravated, in the line of duty and honorably discharged.

Additionally, to be eligible veterans meeting the other prerequisites above must have a 100% disability rating by the VA.

If you have been rated at less than 100% by the VA, and believe you should have received a higher rating, you should contact an experienced veterans law attorney. You may qualify for a property tax exemption or other benefits in your state.
