On August 10th, 2021, Governor Carney signed into law House Bill 214 with House Amendment 1 allowing school districts to grant a Disabled Veterans School Property Tax Credit. Beginning in 2022, qualified persons may be eligible for a tax credit against 100% of non-vocational school district property tax. This credit may only be used against property taxes assessed on a primary residence. Applications for the upcoming tax year are due April 30th.
Qualified Persons must:
Receive 100% disability compensation due to service-connected, permanent and total disability based on individual unemployability or a 100% disability rating from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (USVDA) and
Have held legal domicile in Delaware for the past 3 years.
Individuals may not claim both the Disabled Veterans School Tax Credit and the Senior School Property Tax Credit.
Application Deadline: April 30th.
Taxpayers must pay their property tax bill in full by the end of each tax year in order to qualify for this credit in a subsequent property tax year.
