The Town of East Hampton has exemptions for Veterans of Foreign War.
Each town in The State of Connecticut has different exemptions according to their assessments of real property. A service person must be in service in time of war, a minimum of 90 days if service was after October 1, 1977 to receive this benefit.
These exemption amounts reflect assessment reductions for The Town of East Hampton, only.
Currently the assessment for a Veteran of Foreign War is 3,000.
If a service person has a disability rating from the Department of Veteran Affairs; this exemption increases according to the percent of disability.
Also, if the veteran is 65 or older or is 100% disabled, that veteran may apply for additional benefits, an additional 3,000. (financial requirement)
In East Hampton, an exemption of 10,000 is available for those qualified. This local option has been available since October 1, 2006. (financial requirement)
A spouse of a Veteran of Foreign War is entitled to the benefits of the deceased veteran. The exemption is canceled if the spouse remarries.
