05012018CM0129Permanently disabled veterans wouldn’t have to re-certify their disability each year to receive a property tax break under a measure sponsored by State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines).

“Our veterans fought for our country and sacrificed their mobility. I don’t think they should also have to fight for a property tax exemption each year,” Murphy said.

Under Senate Bill 2431, permanently and totally disabled veterans would not need to reapply each year to receive the Disabled Veterans Standard Homestead Exemption. Under current law, veterans with a service-related disability of at least 70 percent are exempt from paying property taxes on their primary residence.

Senate Bill 2431 passed the Senate 51-0. It now moves to the House for further consideration.
