Property Tax Relief

Beginning on or after January 1, 2009, total and permanent service connected disabled veterans will be entitled to a property tax exclusion under G.S. 105-277-1C. The exclusion is for the permanent residence owned and occupied by an owner who is a North Carolina resident and who is an honorably discharged disabled veteran or an unmarried surviving spouse of an honorably discharged veteran. The first $45,000 of appraised value of the residence is excluded from taxation. An owner who receives exclusion under this section may not receive other property tax relief.

After filling out the application, return it to the Cabarrus County Tax Office along with a copy of your DD214 and a certification from Veterans Affairs stating that the veteran is eligible for relief. To obtain certification the veteran can fill out a Tax Relief Application and return it to our office at P.O. Box 707, Concord, NC 28026-0707.
