Robinson: Expansion of Disabled Veteran Property Tax Relief Approved by Senate

HARRISBURG – Legislation allowing more disabled veterans to receive property tax relief was approved by the Senate this week, said Sen. Devlin Robinson (R-37).

Senate Bill 194 would exclude U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Aid and Attendance benefits as income when calculating eligibility for Pennsylvania’s 100% Disabled Veterans’ Property Tax Exemption.

Federal Aid and Attendance benefits provide monthly payments to disabled veterans who are housebound or need help with daily activities. The benefits cover items such as care services, medication management and property renovations to accommodate the disability.

Without the exclusion, some disabled veterans are prevented from qualifying for property tax reductions.

“This legislation guarantees that our heroes who need assistance the most can receive the property tax relief they deserve, allowing them to focus on their health and well-being without the added burden of financial uncertainty,” said Robinson.

Senate Bill 194 moves to the House of Representatives for consideration.
