Did you know that many of Nevada’s veterans and surviving spouses are eligible for an annual “Veteran Tax Exemption?” This exemption can be used for either their vehicle registration Governmental Service Tax Fee or to reduce their property taxes. Through either selection, veterans and surviving spouse can also donate all or a portion of their exemption to the Nevada State Veterans Homes in Boulder City and Sparks.
This exemption is not granted automatically. To enroll and receive this exemption, veterans or their surviving spouses are asked to contact their County Assessor’s office to determine their eligibility for this benefit. If found to be eligible, they are asked to select how they wish to apply their exemption either to their vehicle’s governmental service tax or property taxes.
When used, this exemption reduces the amount owed and the savings can be kept by the veteran/ surviving spouse or donated to the Nevada State Veterans Homes administered by NDVS. NDVS is grateful for these donations as it helps our department care for our heroes by making the Veterans Home more of a home and less of a skilled nursing facility for the residents.
To learn more about this benefit, veterans/ surviving spouses are asked to visit: https://dmvnv.com/milnvres.htm or to find and contact your local assessor at https://dmvnv.com/assessor.htm.
