Under C.G.S. 12-81, Veterans of the Armed Services who served in time of war are eligible for an exemption on the assessment of their real estate or their motor vehicle.
For eligibility, a veteran must place a copy of his/her service record (usually a DD-214 form) on record in the City Clerk’s office. It must be filed before October 1st of any given year.
The Assessor’s Office maintains a listing of “Time of War” or conflict periods that qualify the veteran for the exemption.
Please note for a change of residence:
- A veteran's exemption will not automatically move to another Connecticut town or city. It must be re-recorded by the veteran in the new town or city for eligibility there.
- If the veteran moves to another address in Milford, the veteran must notify the Milford City Assessor.
