Cold War Veteranís Bill Signed into Law

September 2, 2008

Glen Cove- Assemblyman Charles D. Lavine announced that legislation he sponsored securing a real property tax exemption for Cold War veteranís living in Nassau County was recently signed into law by Governor David Paterson.

Currently there are 18,000 Cold War veterans living in Nassau County who are now eligible for the property tax exemption, which will earn them a tax break beginning in the 2009-10 year.

Those eligible for the tax exemption must fill out the Cold War Veterans Exemption form and provide written evidence that they served in the United States Military between September 2, 1945 and December 26, 1991. All applications must be sent to Nassau County Assessorís office by December 31, 2008.
