the Town of Kinderhook added veterans’ property tax exemptions, passing Local Law #2 of 2018 Feb. 5. The law upped exemption levels from $24,000 to $36,000 for wartime veterans and from $16,000 to $24,000 for combat zone veterans. For disabled veterans the law reads, “50 percent of the veteran’s disability rating not to exceed $120,000.” The parents of a child who died in the line of duty while serving the United States armed forces during a period of war are now also eligible for an exemption in Kinderhook. The county Real Property Tax Service Agency says homeowners can take advantage of the exemption this year since it was passed before March 1. Read the full story in The Columbia Paper.
