State Benefits

A NC property tax homestead exclusion (G.S. 105-277-1C), for honorably discharged veterans who are permanent and total, service connected disabled, and their surviving spouses will begin on January 1, 2009.

(This pertains to those veterans receiving 100% service connected disability or who are receiving Individual Unemployability due to their service connected disabilities through the VA.)

The exclusion is for the permanent residence owned and occupied by an owner who is a North Carolina resident and who is honorably discharged, permanent and total service connected disabled veteran or their unmarried surviving spouse.

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.

To apply for this benefit, please contact our office. A certification form must be completed and sent into the Winston-Salem Regional Office. Once this certification is returned to you, you will need to contact the Brunswick County Tax Office to complete the Property Tax Relief application and submit the certification from the VA.
