Burlington Veterans Property Tax Exemption Increase (March 2010)
This measure was approved in Washington County
This measure was petitioned for by veterans in the city and is on many local ballots within the state. The state allows property tax exemptions, up to $40,000, for veterans but local governments are allowed to set their specific limit. Veterans in Burlington want the tax exemption to be raise to the maximum, which is the $40,000. Tax rates would increase for other citizens of the city due to higher money exempted from veterans.
