Tax Relief and Exemptions

Disabled Veterans

Virginia General Assembly legislation exempts from real estate tax the principal residence of disabled veterans – those whose disability is 100 percent service-connected, permanent and total. The exemption extends to the surviving spouse, if the veteran’s death occurred on or after January 1, 2011.

Applications are required and generally don’t need to be re-filed annually, unless the veteran’s principal place of residence changes.
