How do I file for the disabled veteran's exemption?
Do I have to file for the disabled veterans' exemption annually?
I have just been granted the disabled veterans' exemption on my mobilehome, which is assessed at $58,000. Since I qualify for the basic $100,000 exemption, will the excess be applied to the special assessments or direct levies on my tax bill?
I am a veteran with an 80 percent disability rating. Would I be allowed 80 percent of the disabled veterans' exemption?
Will I still be entitled to the disabled veterans' exemption if my wife and I created a revocable trust where our children hold title to the property as trustees and we as the beneficiaries?
My husband contracted an infectious disease while in the service. He received a 30 percent disability rating from the USDVA, which did not provide eligibility for the disabled veterans' exemption. He recently died as a result of the disease. Am I now eligible for the exemption?
I have been receiving the disabled veterans' exemption as an unmarried surviving spouse for many years. Since I will be 58 next year, may I remarry and still receive the exemption?
Is the exemption allowed if title to the residence is not in the name of the disabled veteran but is only in the name of the spouse?
Is my registered domestic partner regarded the same as my spouse for the disabled veterans' exemption? We purchased a home for $180,000, each having 50 percent interests. What benefits am I entitled to? What if we held title as joint tenants?
I received the disabled veterans' exemption after my first husband's death. Because I later remarried, I lost the benefits of the exemption. I am now divorced from my second husband. Am I allowed the exemption again?
My husband and I owned and lived in our home which received the homeowners' exemption prior to his deployment overseas. He was severely injured and will not be able to return home; instead he needs to be confined to a care facility. Are we allowed the disabled veterans' exemption on our home even though my husband did not qualify at the time he was living there and now may never return to live there?
A roommate and I purchased a home in which we each own a 50 percent interest. As a qualified disabled veteran, am I entitled to only 50 percent of the basic disabled veterans' exemption or am I allowed the entire exemption as to my half? Is my co-owner allowed the homeowners' exemption on her 50 percent interest?
I purchased a home in November 2006 for $250,000 that was benefiting from the disabled veterans' exemption. Will I benefit from that exemption until the end of the 2006-2007 fiscal year even though I am not a disabled veteran?

I currently have the disabled veterans' exemption on my house. If I move in with my parents, can I still receive the exemption if I recent out my house? If not, can the exemption apply to my parents' house since I am now living there?
I am an unmarried surviving spouse of a deceased veteran with two children. In determining whether or not I qualify for the low-income disabled veterans' exemption, do I include the amount of veterans' benefits paid to me and my children in the calculation of household income? Do I include social security payments?
I have been granted the disabled veterans' exemption for past few years. Recently, I realized that I could have qualified for the low-income exemption instead. Can I be granted the difference between the exemption amounts from 2005 to 2007 for those prior years now?
Does the disabled veterans' exemption apply to supplemental assessments?
I purchased a home in February 2006 and received two supplemental bills. Am I allowed the disabled veterans' exemption on both supplemental assessments?
I am a first-time claimant for the disabled veterans' exemption on a $200,000 home that I purchased in October. The home is assessed at $160,000 on the current roll resulting in a supplemental assessment for $40,000. The exemption negated the supplemental assessment, but since I did not use the entire exemption, can the excess be applied to the prorated property taxes I had to pay in escrow on the regular roll?
I am currently receiving the low-income disabled veterans' exemption on my home, which is assessed at $105,000. A friend built an enclosed patio and enlarged a bathroom for me. Do I need to file another claim form for the exemption on the addition?
I purchased a home in September and filed for the low-income disabled veterans' exemption on the following January 6. Because I filed late, the county assessor granted 85 percent of the exemption on the regular roll. I later received a supplemental assessment notice in April for $210,000. Since I already filed for the exemption in January, will I be allowed the remaining 15 percent of the exemption on the supplemental tax bill?
I sold my home that was receiving the disabled veterans' exemption and moved into another home that I purchased. Am I allowed the exemption on my new home right away or do I have to wait for the next lien date (January 1)?
