Deadline approaching for disabled veteran property tax program

The Nov. 1, 2020 deadline for eligible disabled veterans to apply for property tax relief is approaching.

The South Dakota Department of Revenue’s Disabled Veteran’s Program exempts the first $150,000 of valuation on an eligible applicant’s property. The program also applies to surviving spouses of disabled veterans if they have not remarried. Once approved, this exemption will automatically continue until the property changes ownership or is not owner occupied.

To qualify for the program, applicants must meet both of the following criteria:

• The veteran must be rated as permanently

and totally disabled as a result of a service-

connected disability.

• The veteran or a surviving spouse, who

is not remarried, must own and occupy the

property.

Applicants will be required to provide proof of their eligibility to receive the exemption, which may be obtained by calling the Sioux Falls VA Regional Office at 1-800-827-1000.

If approved, applicants will receive their first reduction in their property taxes payable in 2022. Applications can be accessed from their county Director of Equalization or on the Department of Revenue’s website at dor.sd.gov/individuals/taxes/property-tax/relief-programs/#veterans. If you have questions, feel free to call our Property Tax Agents at 1-800-829-9188 (Option 2).
