Constitutional amendment (first resolution); property tax exemptions; property of certain veterans. Provides that the General Assembly may authorize localities to exempt from taxation real property that is the principal residence of a veteran (or widow or widower of a veteran) if the veteran has been determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs or its successor agency pursuant to federal law to have a service-connected, permanent, and 100 percent total disability. This exemption is not limited to veterans deemed to be bearing an extraordinary tax burden in relation to their income and financial worth. Read the Bill »
