Assessing Department

Beginning in 2013 real property used and owned as a principal residence by a disabled veteran who was honorably discharged from the United States armed forces is exempt from taxation. The unremarried surviving spouse of a disabled veteran is also eligible for this tax exemption program. To receive an exemption, the veteran or his/her surviving spouse must annually file the attached Disabled Veterans Exemption Affidavit with the Assessing Department and must also satisfy all of the specific eligibility requirements listed within the attached affidavit.

The Board of Review will consider these exemption requests at either the March, July and December Boards of Review. If you have additional questions regarding this property tax exemption, please review the attached State Tax Commission bulletin or Frequently Asked Questions booklet regarding this exemption program or contact Jenny Skiba at the Shelby Township Assessing Office at (586) 731-5910.
