Our District 11 Legislators have announced that there is a new law in effect making New Jersey veterans eligible for a $3,000 tax exemption when filing their State income taxes. This law applies to any veteran who was honorably discharged from the Armed Forces of the United States regardless of income or to a spouse filing on behalf of a spouse who passed away in the past tax year.
Applicants should fill out a Veteran Income Tax Exemption Submission Form and provide official documentation of honorable discharge. The form and more information is available here.
Applicants can also contact the Office of Senator Vin Gopal and Assembly members Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey at 732-695-3371 for a submission form, to obtain more information or for assistance in completing the application.
