Veteran Property Tax Exemption


State Representative Joe Gresko, (D)
121st Connecticut House District

Dear Neighbor,

Veterans put their lives on the line for our country and the House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill that would support veterans who have been disabled during service. This is a small way to say “thank you for your service.”

HB 5491 establishes a property tax exemption for veterans who have a service-connected permanent and total disability rating as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. The exemption will be used for a home that is a primary residence, but if a qualified veteran does not own a home, the exemption will apply to a single motor vehicle that they own.

In CT, we have 1,209 veterans who are totally and permanently disabled as a result of their service.

These brave men and women have spent their lives fighting to protect our freedoms. It is our turn to support them when they come home with disabilities to ensure they live with dignity and without fear of losing their home.

The bill will now go to the Senate for consideration. This year’s session ends on May 8.

As always, if I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact my office at (860) 240-8585 or email me directly.

Joseph P. Gresko
