Honorably discharged military veterans who did not serve during time of war would be eligible for the $250 property tax deduction and the property tax exemption granted by law to veterans with a service-connected disability thanks to a bipartisan ballot question sponsored by Senator Chris Brown.

“We are taking one more step to help all of the men and women who served our country to afford to stay in their homes,” Brown said. “Expanding property tax relief to all veterans is part of our effort making it easier for them to transition into civilian life.”
Since expanding veterans’ property tax relief requires a change in the State’s constitution, Brown’s public question will permit voters to approve the ballot question amending the State constitution to expand this benefit.
“Though many who served did not see combat, their vigilance deterred conflict. I am confident the families of New Jersey recognize the dedication and sacrifice of the members of our armed forces who stood ready to fight at a moment’s notice and will approve the ballot question,” said Brown.
