Rock n chair rambler, Disabled vets do not get full exemption only those who recieved 100 percent disability rating. I served 27 years in the Army, with 8 tours in Iraq, 4 in Afghanistan, 1 in Phillipines, Somalia and Haiti. I come from a family of military veterans as well and will tell you, that back in the days of the World war 1 and 2 and vietnam, those vets didnt get thier fair share. My grandfather took shrapnel to his back yes while driving for a General and lost a few vertebrates because of it and was only recieving 20 percent disability which get you nothing. No tax exemptions, no DV plates nothing. You have to get at least a 50% percent disability rating to get anything and the VA doesnt give it out like candy. Even if you were to get lets say 70%, well that gets you about 7k off of your property taxes. When you take that to the tax office they will just asses your property is worth more then it truly is, usually by 7k more, so you still pay. I know, this from truth. So 70% really doesnt get you much, 7k off of property taxes, free liscense plates for 1 car only, free parking at meters in town. Now you tell me that is alot for what our veterans have done for this country. Just because you never went to war but served 20 years, you are still a veteran and you may get no disablity rating so you dont get a thing other then your retirement pay, which they earned. I believe veterans should be allowed to be tax free, but the only time that happens is when they are deployed to war or a hostile area. We fought for our freedom and its not the veterans who have this country in debt. Go to the VA hospital and see if they get special treatment. Once you retire, you go to the back of the line for everything the military has to offer from seeing a doctor to getting your meds. I get my retirement pay and that is it, no free medical, no free meds, nothing. I pay my taxes. Its not the veterans that have us in debt, its the rest of the freeloaders we are paying for.
