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.
Older or Disabled Homeowners
Arlington homeowners who are age 65 or older, or disabled may be eligible for real estate tax relief. The Arlington County Real Estate Tax Relief Program provides an exemption and/or deferral of real estate taxes for qualified Arlington homeowners age 65 and older and certain totally and permanently disabled homeowners.
Partial Exemption for Rehabilitated Properties
Certain substantially rehabilitated, renovated or replaced properties, both residential and commercial, are eligible for a partial real estate tax exemption.
