Disabled Veterans Tax Exemption

Disabled Veterans Tax Exemption

Exemption History

In November 2006, Colorado voters passed Referendum E – Property Tax Exemption for Disabled Veterans. This amendment to the Colorado Constitution extends the existing property tax exemption for qualifying seniors to any U.S. military veteran who is 100% permanently disabled due to a service-connected disability.

Deadline

Applications must be submitted no later than July 1 to the Colorado Department of Military and Veteran Affairs to have the exemption apply to the tax bill you will receive the following year.

Qualification

The qualifying veteran must meet the criteria for a qualifying disability and have owned and occupied the home as his or her primary residence since January 1 of the year of application.

Surviving Spouse of a Disabled Veteran

The exemption is extended to the surviving spouse of a qualifying disabled veteran. Please see the application for eligibility requirements. The application must be submitted to the Assessors Office no later than July 1.

Gold Star Spouses

In 2022 the state legislature extended the exemption to surviving spouses of Gold Star Veterans. The applicant must have owned and occupied the home as his or her primary residence since January 1 of the year of application. Applications must be submitted to the Colorado Department of Military and Veteran Affairs no later than July 1st.
