Municipal Tax Relief for Gold Star Parents and Spouses

June 3, 2017

I am glad to support a bill concerning a municipal option property tax exemption for Gold Star Parents and Spouses, which is headed to the governor for signing. Senate Bill 918 allows municipalities to provide a property tax exemption to a parent or surviving spouse of a service member killed in action while performing active military duty. A municipality may exempt up to $20,000 or 10% of the property's assessed value. The bill passed the House 141-1.
