“Our service men and women dedicated their lives to serve our county, state, and communities,” said Thompson. “It is our duty to continue to protect them here at home. Now by providing a $3,000 tax exemption, we can continue to create an affordable New Jersey for our veterans.”
The exemption is accessible to all veterans who were honorably discharged from the United States Armed Forces, regardless of their income status or any other benefits they collect.
“It is vital to notify our local veterans before they start their taxes,” Thompson stated. “This exemption will provide critical tax relief for all who honorably served our country and their families, we should not allow information to fall through the cracks.”
To receive the Income Tax Exemption for Veterans, a veteran must fill out a submission form on the New Jersey Division of Taxation website and send it in with their DD-214, or Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty.
Senator Thompson’s District Office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM, and can provide veterans with the information needed to apply for the new tax exemption.
