I am a disabled veteran. Am I entitled to any property tax deductions?
You may qualify for a property tax deduction if you are either:
- a veteran who was disabled while serving with the U.S. armed forces or
- the surviving spouse or child (under 18 years of age or unmarried) of a disabled veteran
You must be a Texas resident and must provide documentation from the Veteran’s Administration reflecting the percentage of your service-connected disability. Your disability rating must be at least 10%. To file please follow this link and complete the Disabled Veteran’s or Survivor’s Exemption application.
If your disability rating is 100% you may qualify for a 100% Disable Veteran’s Homestead Exemption. This property must be your principal residence and you may not claim homestead on another property. You can apply for the 100% Disabled Veteran’s Homestead Exemption by following this link and completing the Homestead application.
