A1: I guess it depends on the state where you live. I am in SC, 100% disability and totally exempt from property taxes. Also, when I die my wife will inherit the exemption unless she remarries. Great state, SC. (JC) 11/17/19
A2: Age alone, in most states doesn't qualify you. However, SOME states do discount property taxes for seniors/Veterans. I recommend working with a Service officer to see what, and where you can qualify for things. Check with the DAV, VFW, AM Legion, or purple heart organizations for help. (KD) 11/17/19
A3: Probably, but it depends. Go see your County Tax Assessor to find out what your State/County requirements are. (DJ) 11/17/19
A4: Yes, you qualify for tax relief. Bring your DD-214 and your Honorable Discharge certificate to the Assessors office in your local Town Hall. They will handle the rest for you. (DM) 11/20/19
