May 1 Deadline for Veterans

May 1, 2024, is the last day for the listers to receive application for tax exemption due to disabled veteran status.

32 V.S.A. 3802 (11)

Contact the Washington listers at washingtonlister@gmail.com, or call Mondays 1-3 p.m., or call at other times to leave a message.

1-802-883-2218

The exemption only applies to homes that are owned by the veteran or survivor; and is the primary residence.  Veterans or survivors who rent their homes can not pass this exemption on to their landlord.

To receive the exemption, the veteran must provide proof of eligibility to the Vermont Office of Veterans Affairs. Most veterans will have to provide proof of eligibility every year before May 1st. Veterans who are determined to be totally and permanently disabled only have to provide proof of eligibility the first year they use the benefit for a home (if they move to a new home in a different town, they will have to provide proof of eligibility again). They also must provide proof of eligibility by May 1st.

Proof of eligibility is provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Our recommendation is to call the VA no later than April 1st to request this documentation. The proof of eligibility may also be obtained through ebenefits
