Legislation sponsored by Senator Christopher Connors, Assemblyman Brian Rumpf, and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove which would extend the current disabled veteran’s property tax exemption to disabled veteran shareholders and their surviving spouses residing in a cooperative or mutual housing corporation was passed by the State Senate on July 30 of this year.

The 9th District legislators issued the following statement regarding the advancement of their veterans’ initiative (S-956):

“This legislative proposal was introduced to correct a discrepancy in State whereby disabled veterans could not receive the veteran’s property tax exemption as cooperative or mutual housing corporations. To receive the exemption under current State law, a disabled veteran’s permanent residence must be a condominium, one-family, or multifamily home.

“Disabled veterans living in the state should not be excluded from receiving property tax relief, which they rightly deserve in view of their sacrifice to our nation, based on a technicality defining housing. This can and should be fixed, which is why we are extremely proud that our legislative proposal passed the Senate with bipartisan sponsorship and support. Hopefully, the vote will lead to action in the Assembly where the companion legislation is awaiting consideration by the Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee.”

For several consecutive legislative sessions, members of the 9th Legislative District delegation have served, respectively, on the Senate and Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs committees.
