  • The veteran or surviving spouse occupies the property as his or her principal residence; and
  • In the case of a surviving spouse, the death of the veteran occurred on or after January 1, 2011, and the surviving spouse has not remarried.

Applications are now available for the City’s Real Property Tax Relief for Veterans with 100 Percent Service-Connected Disability.
