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.

I am afraid of Texans. It's a hangin' state, and I am liberal-hippy-flower-child. But, no property tax may make me a Texan. I will look into this. I know I have family in Lubbock.

Texas is a big state and you can find liberal and conservative in many places. But if you are a fisherman there are plenty of places not into politics either.

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.

I do enjoy fishing for yellow bellies and small mouth bass and really anything that will bite. I just park the chair and cast the line. I use to fly fish, a lot. Can't do that these days, but I still think about when I could. Dad is talked about fly fishing from a kayak, but everywhere I always fly fished at was shallow and fast, so I don't know if that'll work out.

And I don't like any politicians, the liberal statement was --I should have put libertarian.

Georgia and South Carolina both have free property taxes for up to one acre regardless of the price of the home and 2 free license plates for the auto's when the vet passes away the spouse still gets the free property taxes but loses the free license plates you have to see each state and what they offer they all set their own rules

well testvet Georgia will only give you a break on the property taxes if you are 100% and only one tag. But you get free driver license for life. I know this as I live here in Georgia and applied and that is what I was told from the property and tag office.ALL WIDOWS get the propert t.ax break for one year after the death of there wife or husband. But they will not tell you this. I found this out thru the VFW I am a menber of.

Wow that's much better than the benefit in Indiana. We get a 24,000 tax abatement which knocks off about $300 a year in property taxes.

I think all States should give each veteran a discount on their taxes to the vet disabillity.And as the vet % goes up the taxes goes down. JMHO :rolleyes:

In Florida the spouse can keep the 100% exemption but she/he must be on the deed at time of death of the vet. You can't wait to have your new wife on the deed until they read the will. I paid for my house before I got married, but I broke down and added my wife to the deed, so she could get the exemption. What a guy! Now I have an official taster for all my food. I am worth more to her dead than alive. This is slightly creepy knowledge.

Papa, also from what I understand, a 100% rated veteran in Texas can also remove $12,000 off the taxable valuation of a second property if they own it. I myself only own one home and property. Well, me and the mortgage company do anyway, but for those who may have inherited or have some other situation whereby they own two pieces of land, they can get their homestead completely non-taxed, and a pretty good portion removed from another.

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.

Mark

I also have other property in the Hill Country, and ask about an exemption on that property and was told it was good for your main house only. Maybe, your county is offering something that Bexar and Blanco Counties are not. Also, Texas has a great web-site where you can actually get land loans, home improvement loans, and other benefits. I think it is through the Texas Land Commission.

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.
