They will still get the benefit, as a new law was just pasted. Also, while you must be 100% to get ALL the property tax paid for, you get can a reduction in your property tax here in Texas based upon your level of disability percentage. My normal property tax would be $2,000.00, and based on 50% disability my property tax is $1,200.00. Next year it should go down some more, as I'm 70% now. So, Texas Vets can save some money even if they are not 100%. The best thing is this new law.
Papa, That's great in both counts 1. It will continue for my wife, 2. That your at 70%, Hell you should 200%, damn VA games.

I don't know of a politician in Texas worth the powder to blow them up something my Dad used to tell me and I agree with him now.

Not a bad deal. If anybody out there is in Texas, and eligible it is best to get in the system now. You never know when the state legislature may change their minds. If you are already in the system, you stand a much better chance for you and your spouse to be grandfathered in regardless of legislative changes. Now although this may not occur, the legislature has been known to make changes in law, but grandfathering in those who are already participating.

To add to this discussion in regards to Texas Property Tax:
If you receive a 100% rating retrospectively, you can request a refund based on the retro date. My claim sat for 26 months and crossed over two tax years. When I received the decision, along with the 100% exemption request, I requested the refund based on my retrospective date and received every penny paid into property tax for the full year prior and didn't have to pay for the current year. Most HS exemptions require that you file for it prior to January 1st of the tax year, but not in this case. So if an assessors office tells you that you can't request a refund, I'd ask to speak to their boss.
Hope this helps.
