Applications can be made in person or online by way of the tax credit links at the bottom of a property report. Applications must be made with the Assessor on or before July 1 of the year the exemption is first claimed. The exemption remains in effect until the property owner is no longer eligible. (Refer to Code of Iowa Chapter 426)
Qualification is determined based on residency (pay Iowa income tax), type of discharge and time served. Military veterans including Iowa National Guard and United States Reservists may qualify. Unless already recorded with the county, bring honorable discharge paper DD214 to be recorded.
