We need your help in making sure all Veteran homeowners, and surviving spouses of Veterans, know they are now eligible for the $250 Veterans’ deduction on property tax bills.
We are asking you to help spread the word to Veterans and surviving spouses, who may not be receiving the benefit at this time.
There are many who are finally eligible for the property tax deduction and now need to submit an application to their local tax office to gain the benefit.
Veterans and surviving spouses can obtain an application from the County’s Veteran Services Office by contacting VSO Richard Booth, firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 908 788-1361 or from the County Clerk’s Veterans webpage; www.co.hunterdon.nj.us/countyclerk.htm#veterans
County Clerk Mary Melfi and Sheriff Fred Brown, a U.S. Navy Veteran, have joined us in what we are calling the Veterans, You Earned It campaign to bring awareness to all Veterans and surviving spouses.
We believe all those who have served our nation in the military have earned this benefit, which is why we are calling this effort the Veterans, You Earned It! campaign.
We have included a flyer about the Veterans, You Earned It! campaign for your use. If you would like more flyers, please contact the County’s VSO Richard Booth.
Thank you for your help in this effort to make sure all our Veterans and their surviving spouses gain this important and deserved benefit. And thank you for your service.
