Property tax exemption for certain veterans and their surviving spouses and surviving spouses of soldiers killed in action.
Virginia Ballot Measure - Question 2
Election: Nov. 6, 2018 (General)
The proposed amendment would allow the surviving spouse of any veteran who has been determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to have a 100 percent service-connected, permanent, and total disability to continue to claim the tax exemption currently provided, even if the surviving spouse moves to a new principal place of residence that is owned by the surviving spouse.
A "yes" vote will allow these surviving spouses to move to a new principal place of residence that is owned by the surviving spouse and still claim the tax exemption.
A "no" vote will not allow such surviving spouses to move and still claim the tax exemption.
Shall the real property tax exemption for a primary residence that is currently provided to the surviving spouses of veterans who had a one hundred percent service-connected, permanent, and total disability be amended to allow the surviving spouse to move to a different primary residence and still claim the exemption?
Yes ( ) No ( )
