While the veteran exemption is new in the county where I live (Fairfax) they actually do offer tax relief but it is based not only on disability and age but also earnings it is a nice comfort to know.

Of Friday I spent the day getting my refund in the works since I am 100% P&T I am eligible for a prorated portion from 2009 of 2 months since being rated and I also will get a % based on earnings of 2009 for this year 2010 and that is a good chunk of change.

If and when the new law is passed we all P%T in Virginia will be looking at NO real estate and some personal property tax to be exempted.

This will help many veterans who have a reduced earning capacity keep their homes.

By the way those that are like me and pay their taxes in their monthly payment and run an escrow with their banks. Don't forget to let them know and get the refund of that too!!

My local news station just annouced that it passed.

I will have to pay $2000.00 this December, but relief in June.

Thanks all Virginia voters.

I will not get quite as much as you in the way of benefit for this but every bit will help veterans that are 100% and P&T!
