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:

  1. a veteran who was disabled while serving with the U.S. armed forces or
  2. 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.
