Disabled military veterans may get a break on their Loudoun County personal property taxes under a proposal headed to the Board of Supervisors.
If the tax break is approved, starting in 2017, permanently disabled veterans—that is, veterans who have lost the use of either or both legs, arms, or hands, or who are blind, and are certified by the Department of Veterans Services—will pay only one cent per $100 of assessed value on one of their motor vehicles. For everyone else, and for the rest of a disabled vet’s vehicles, the rate is $4.20 on every vehicle.
The county board directed Commissioner of the Revenue Robert S. Wertz Jr. to study the fiscal impact of the tax break at its April 26 meeting. Wertz’s office estimates the county would give up approximately $32,551 in revenue annually.
