School Tax Breaks for Veterans
Last night, the Hudson City School District Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a tax exemption for veterans in the 2015-2016 school year. The exemption provides a 15 percent reduction in school tax for veterans who served during wartime and an additional 10 percent for those who served in a combat zone. To be eligible, veterans must have served during the following periods: World War II, from December 7, 1941, to December 31, 1946; the Korean War, from June 27, 1950, to January 31, 1955; the Vietnam War, from February 28, 1961, to May 7, 1975; the Persian Gulf conflict, from August 2, 1990, to the present. Applications for veterans' exemptions must be filed with the assessor's office by Monday, March 2.
