Some excellent news just came out of Hartford for Service-Connected Disabled Veterans of our United States Armed Forces, a new law has just been signed that may eliminate their property taxes.

On the eve of Memorial Day Weekend 2024, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont has announced that he has signed legislation which created a new state law that exempts the property taxes on the primary residence or motor vehicle of former members of the US Armed Forces who have a permanent and total disability rating resulting from their active-duty service. To qualify, you must have served in the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corp, Air Force, Coast Guard, or Space Force. You must reside in Connecticut, file for the exemption with your town's assessor, and have a service-connected permanent total disability rating as determined by the United States Department of Veteran Affairs.

The exemption may be applied to a home that is owned by an eligible service member, and is their primary residence. If the veteran does not own the home, the tax exemption will apply to one motor vehicle that the service member owns.

According to, Public Act 24-46, An Act Establishing a Property Tax Exemption For Veterans Who Have A Service-Connected Permanent and Total Disability Rating, was unanimously approved by every member of the Connecticut General Assembly that was present to vote. The new law will take effect here in Connecticut as of October 1, 2024.

As the son, and son-in-law of former members of the US Armed Forces, thank you for your service, and thank you to our Representatives.
