Cold war Veterans Exemption:

The exemption provides a partial property tax exemption (as adopted by your local municipality) to veterans who served during the Cold War period. The law also provides an additional exemption to disabled veterans, equal to one-half of their service-connected disability ratings. The basic exemption is limited to 10 years, but there is no time limit for the disabled portion of this exemption. In both instances, the exemption is limited to the primary residence of the veteran, and is applicable only to general municipal taxes, not to school taxes or special district levies.

Home Improvement Property Tax Exemption:

The Home Improvement Exemption is an eighth year decreasing exemption on alterations, reconstructions or improvements that increase the assessed value of a one or two-family home. For the first year of the exemption, 100 percent of the assessed value of the improvement is exempt. In the second year, 87.5 percent; in the third year, 75 percent; and so on.  Please refer to the brochure for list of taxable and non-taxable improvements.
