This new exemption was included in the gas tax hike legislation. The information for qualifying and submitting DD214 is here:

Please spread the word.

Also reminder: there has been a long standing $250 property tax exemption for veterans and full exemption for totally disabled veterans, more info here:

Thanks for this. I didn't know about the $3K exemption.

My husband was an honorably discharged veteran and is now deceased. Does this exemption apply to veteran widows? I looked but didn't see anything regarding widows being eligible.

"This deduction also is available to a surviving spouse/civil union/domestic partner who has not remarried. This benefit is administered by the local municipality."

From the link posted above.

@Calico696 I think Parental Unit was asking about the $3000 exemption and does it apply to the surviving spouse. No mention of that on the NJ treasury page so probably not but I would suggest calling Trenton and asking.

The $250 local tax deduction does apply to surviving spouse.

Am I reading it correctly that the application for the state is 1 time filing, but the local one has to be submitted every year?


Both filings are 1 time filings.

Thank you, hadn't heard of this! It looks like a savings of a little under $200 in income tax, if I am looking at it correctly. That's a nice dinner out at a local restaurant.
