Veteran Property Tax Exemption
In 2014, Colorado’s Legislature extended this exemption to the surviving spouse of a disabled veteran who previously received the exemption. Surviving spouse applications are submitted to the county assessor.
- The disability must have been service related, while serving on active duty in the Armed services.
- The veteran must have been honorably discharged.
- The Department of Veteran's Affairs will have issued a "permanent and total" disability rating to the veteran.
- The veteran must own the property and must have been an owner of record since January 1 of the application year. In some circumstances ownership by a spouse or by a trust or other legal entity may be considered acceptable.
