Senate Committee to Consider Property Tax Breaks for Veterans

Lawmakers in the Iowa Senate are considering legislation that would provide additional property tax breaks for veterans. A bill that would expand tax credits for veterans got approval from a Senate subcommittee Thursday. The bill will next be reviewed by the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee. Under the proposal, veterans considered fully disabled with a service-connected injury would be exempted from paying any property taxes. The bill would also boost the amount of property tax credits available to all veterans in the state.
