New London committee reminds veterans of tax exemptions
The New London Veterans Affairs Committee is advising veterans of their eligibility for various property tax exemptions.
Veterans who have 90 days of wartime service, including Merchant Marines who served during World War II, are eligible for a $1,500 exemption for property tax purposes. It can be applied to their real estate or automobile tax bills.
Certain veterans who do not own real property or a motor vehicle may be eligible for a tax refund if they are leasing a vehicle. Veterans below a certain income level and/or service-connected disabled veterans are eligible for additional property tax exemptions. Surviving spouses of veterans also may be eligible for this benefit.
Any active-duty military member, no matter where they are stationed, can buy hunting, trapping and fishing licenses at the resident rate.
Connecticut offers a free lifetime pass to all state parks and forests for residents with a service-connected disability.
These and other veteran benefits are discussed at the committee's monthly meeting on the third Thursday of every month. The meetings are being held on Zoom during the coronavirus pandemic. Contact the committee at (860) 440-6691 or email@example.com for more information.
