My spouse is a Disabled Army Veteran with a rating of 60%. Vermont law provides a property tax exemption when a Veteran is granted a rating of 50% or higher.
For two years my husband was denied the exemption. The town claims they never got the paperwork, we highly dispute that. I don't believe the Voters of Bennington County or the State of Vermont ever intended for the politician to have this loophole. Please read my petition, sign if it you would please. Then if you feel strongly that the politician should listen to the voters and stop looking for loopholes pass the petition link on.

Thank you!

I am not sure what the exact exemption involves or the criteria, however, if a veteran is denied just due benefits by town or county officials a remedy is to work with the VA as well as contact the American legion and VFW as well as your state representatives and in our case it would be a nice project for Senator Sanders who likes to stump for Veterans. A few well placed calls and perhaps even media attention can be what it takes to make sure deserving and eligible vets get what they are entitled to.

Don't hesitate to call in the big guns if you are getting nowhere. One of the best things about Vermont is that you can actually call your elected representatives and get results. Good luck, and don't give up!
