Eligible funds veterans exemption - Recently Asked Questions

The following is a set of Recently Asked Questions (RAQs) from local officials about the Real Property Tax Law. It is essentially a distillation of selected e-mail exchanges, with each answer representing an informal expression of our reading of the law that was then in effect. We must emphasize that the answers they contain are purely advisory, may not be equated to formal Opinions of Counsel, and should not be construed to be binding in any way. Assessors and other local officials seeking definitive legal advice should consult their municipal attorneys.

RAQ #1  10/31/13 On 9/16/2013, we received a question involving a veteran with a severe disability who is purchasing a house and will be receiving a grant to adapt the house for the veterans severe disability. The property contains a ranch house with attached garage, pool, a detached 4000 square foot pole building (not near the house) used by the current owner for his crane operation business and 28.75 acres. The question is whether the pole building and all of the acreage is eligible for this exemption.
