$3000 NJ Tax Exemption for Veterans
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:
Thank you for the information. I just completed the form and uploaded the documents to the NJ web site.
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?
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.
