Disabled Veterans School Tax Credit

  • Qualified persons may be eligible for a tax credit against 100% of non-vocational school district property tax. This credit may only be used against property taxes assessed on a primary residence. 

    We encourage all who qualify to apply for tax relief. To qualify:

    1. Receive 100% disability compensation due to service-connected, permanent and total disability based on individual unemployability or a 100% disability rating from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (USDVA);
    2. Have held legal domicile in Delaware for the past 3 years

    The application deadline is April 30th. Taxpayers must pay their property tax bill in full by the end of each tax year in order to qualify for this credit in a subsequent property tax year.

    To qualify, applicants must provide:

    • A valid driver's license or official state ID
    • Documentation of USDVA disability
    • A copy of their social security card
