NOTE - Wartime service criteria for the 100% Disabled Veteran’s Property Tax Exemption was amended by law January 16, 2018 and was effective immediately. Wartime service in a specified geographic location for a minimum number of days is no longer required. If the veteran was on active duty during any of the statutory service periods listed above, he or she meets the wartime service criterion for exemption. Other requirements, such as honorable discharge, property ownership, disability, etc., are unchanged.This amendment does not apply to the $250 Veteran’s Property Tax Deduction.

1. APPLICATION FILING PERIOD File this form with the municipal tax assessor at any time during the tax year. Partial or prorated exemption is permitted for the remainder of any taxable year from the date ownership or title to the dwelling house is acquired provided all other eligibility requirements are met. For example, where application is filed on June 1st of the tax year for exemption on a dwelling house acquired on February 14th of the tax year, the assessed value is to be prorated for taxation purposes so that 44/365th's of the total assessment would be taxable and 321/365th's would be exempt. 2.

Dwelling house means any one-family building or structure or unit in a horizontal property regime or condominium or multiple-family building or structure on that portion occupied by the claimant as his legal residence including any outhouses or appurtenances used for the dwelling's fair enjoyment. Curtilage means the enclosed space of ground and buildings immediately surrounding the dwelling house and enjoyed with it for its more convenient occupation.

4. RESIDENCE IN DWELLING HOUSE DEFINED Means a wartime service-connected disability as described under #5 on front of this claim and certified as such by the United States Veterans Administration.

5. VETERAN DEFINED
Means any New Jersey citizen and resident honorably discharged from active wartime service in the United States Armed Forces. For assistance in documenting veterans' status, contact the NJ Department of Military and Veterans Affairs at (609) 530-6958 or (609) 530-6854.
