Did you know that you had to received your 100% disability on or after 1 Jan 2009? These Vets & their surviving spouses are the ONLY ones that do not have to pay property tax. Seems the folks in Austin added a cutoff date to what we voted on.

Not true. I know a number of 100% disabled vets and they're been drawing it for many years before Jan 1, 2009.

You are absolutely right. I tried to help a never
remarried Widow of a Viet Nam Veteran get the tax break. She was flat turned down!!! Unfortunately only some Iraq and Afghanistan surviving spouses will get this tax exemption.

This thread is about those spouses of 100% disabled Veterans who have passed away from a service connected condition. A recent law was passed that would grant spouses that have not remarried a total property tax exemption if their Veteran spouse
was granted a 100% disability and died after a certain date in in 2009.

When I voted YES for this Law, I thought that any surviving spouse from any war would qualify for the tax exemption if they ha remained
Unmarried.

Check again no one before 1 Jan 2009 got $0 property tax - you can check with the folks at the 5th street annex.

Your initial statement was kind of unclear. I thought you meant only 100% disabled that was granted after Jan, 2009.
Yes, you are correct about the new law.

Property tax exemption equals live for free or a percent of free. Why?

The economic impact that this exemption has caused is devastating.

I have nothing to say about anyone who was drafted and served. But for any one who signed up based upon their own free will why should a property tax exemption be given?

I do appreciate the sacrifice that those people have made but do not agree that they should receive a tax exemption for something that they chose to do. And definitely under no circumstances should a spouse qualify for the exemption under any circumstances.
