Veteran's Exemptions

Property tax exemptions are available to veterans and active duty military personnel. Persons currently serving in one of the branches of the United States armed forces, as well as honorably discharged veterans who served at least 90 days during a period of war, are eligible for a veteran’s exemption. (As of the June 8, 2009 effective date of a statutory change to §27-103, service during a specified war period may be 90 cumulative, rather than 90 consecutive days. Prior to June 8, 2009, service of 90 or more consecutive days was required.) Such service may have been to the United States of America or to a country allied with ours during World War I or World War II. (See Exceptions to the United States armed forces’ service requirement on page 8-12.) Exemptions are also available to veterans who have suffered a disability. Some of these exemptions are available to surviving family members of a deceased veteran.

The basic Veteran's Exemption for the City of Danbury is $1,500 off the assessment of your property.
