Deadline approaching for veteran’s tax break


NAUGATUCK — The Naugatuck Assessor’s Office issued a reminder that all new residents must file their original DD-214 with the Town Clerk’s Office on or before Sept. 30, to be eligible for a veteran’s exemption on the 2011 Grand List.

Anyone who has previously filed their DD-214 or are a borough veteran who is presently receiving the basic veteran’s exemption you do not need to re-file.

To be eligible a veteran must have served during the war dates and other recognized military campaigns and operations under state statute.

Active military can contact the Assessor’s Office for information concerning an exemption on their motor vehicle. The state Office of Policy and Management recently enacted legislation that will exempt one vehicle of the military personnel regardless where the vehicle is garaged. Applications for the exemption must be signed by a commanding officer no later than Dec. 31 and can be obtained at the Assessor’s Office.

For more information, call the Assessor’s Office at (203) 720-7016.
