Virginia says yes to tax relief for disable veterans

Voters in Virginia said yes to constitutional amendments grant property tax exemptions.

One amendment gives local governments more discretion in deciding to grant exemptions on property
taxes for people who are 65 or older or who are permanently and totally disabled.

The second amendment forces the state legislature to exempt totally disabled veterans from paying real estate taxes on their primary residence.

This is wonderful news for our elderly and our veterans.

Which state will be next to offer assistance to our veterans?
