This program is for Veterans who have received a disability rating from the VA (Veteran's Administration) or for their unmarried surviving spouse and minor orphans of a veteran with a disability or of a veteran with a disability who died as a result of military service. As per Utah State Code; Section 59-2-1104, 1105.
If you have already qualified for the Veterans with a Disability Abatement in 2016 the 2017 Veteran with a Disability Verification form will be mailed as of January 1, 2017. Please review and return the form by September 1, 2017.
If filing for the first time please see information below:
In order to qualify for the Veteran with a Disability or Veteran Spouse Abatement: There must be a service connected disability rating of 10% - 100%. The home or vehicles must be in the applicants name as of January 1st of current year. The home must be the "primary residence" which is defined as: the principal place where one actually lives.
Along with a completed application, if filing for the first time Veterans with a Disability must include a copy of their Summary of Benefits letter from the VA. If you did not receive this letter please call the VA at 1-800-827-1000 and request a current benefits letter showing your disability percentage and effective date. This letter may also be found on the VA's E- Benefits program.
Widows/Widowers who are filing for the first time must also submit a current letter from the VA showing that they are the unmarried widow/widower of the veteran along with the veteran's disability percentage at the time of their death. A copy of the veteran's death certificate is also required when filing for the first time.
The abatement will apply to 2017's property taxes. If the verification form is returned to us by June 30, 2017 the abatement will appear on the Valuation Notice (for real property) that is mailed at the end of July.
