SC expands property tax exemption for disabled vets

COLUMBIA – South Carolina disabled veterans applying for a property tax exemption on real estate are now granted the exemption for the full year in which they became disabled, if they owned the property that entire year.

This change is effective immediately and retroactive to 2022.

Surviving spouses of disabled veterans can receive the same exemption, regardless of whether their veteran spouse applied for or claimed the exemption.

The exemption was expanded by legislation signed by the governor in March and retroactive to 2022. Under the new legislation, a South Carolina military veteran who is totally and permanently disabled may immediately claim a property tax exemption on real estate the veteran owns beginning with the year in which the disability occurs.
