Property Tax Exclusion

Beginning on or after January 1, 2009, total and permanent service connected disabled veterans are entitled to a property tax exclusion under G.S. 105-277-1C. The exclusion is for the permanent residence owned and occupied by an owner who is a North Carolina resident and who is an honorable discharged disabled veteran or unmarried surviving spouse of an honorably discharged discharged veteran. The first $45,000 of appraised value of the residence is excluded from taxation. An owner who receives exclusion under this section may not receive other property tax relief.
