Disabled Veteran Tax Exemption Workshops

workshop

At the request of the Assessor’s office, Veterans Affairs has been asked to send out an updated notice of six different outreach workshops in February that have been scheduled for the Disabled Veterans Tax Exemption Changes.

We invite you to pass this information to veterans. There will be exemption forms available and opportunities to speak one-on-one with staff from the Assessor’s office. Please note: All Veterans must bring an updated copy of their VA (Veterans Administration) certification letter showing his or her disability level.
