Title Modify Property Tax Exemption For Veterans With Disabilities
Status House Committee on State, Civic, Military, & Veterans Affairs Postpone Indefinitely (03/04/2021)

Date Introduced 02/16/2021

The Colorado constitution allows a veteran who has a

service-connected disability rated as a 100% permanent disability to claim
a property tax exemption for 50% of the first $200,000 of actual value of
the veteran's owner-occupied primary residence. The general assembly
may enact legislation to raise or lower the $200,000 actual value limit but
the 100% permanent disability requirement can only be changed through
a constitutional amendment.
For property tax years commencing on and after January 1, 2021,
the bill increases from $200,000 to $300,000 the maximum amount of
actual value of the owner-occupied primary residence of an eligible
veteran with a disability of which 50% is exempt from property taxation.
If at the 2022 general election the voters of the state approve a proposed
constitutional amendment to make more veterans eligible for the
exemption by allowing veterans who have a service-connected disability
rated as a 50% or greater to claim the exemption, the bill makes a
conforming statutory amendment to reflect the expansion of the
exemption for property tax years commencing on or after January 1, 2023.
