Disabled Veterans Exemption
The 100% Disabled Veterans Exemption provides for exemption of the full fair cash value of homestead property. In order to qualify for this Exemption, the individual must be:
- head of household,
- who has been honorably discharged from active service in a branch of the Armed Forces of the United States or Oklahoma National Guard,
- who has been certified by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to have one hundred percent (100%) permanent disability sustained through military action or accident or resulting from a disease contracted while in active service,
- Who, as of January 1, owns the property that has a Homestead Exemption in place or is eligible for a Homestead Exemption on the property.
You may apply for this exemption at the Tulsa County Assessor’s Office between 8:00–5:00 Monday–Friday (excluding holidays). Our office is located at Tulsa County Administration Building, Room 215, 500 S. Denver, Tulsa, OK 74103. You must bring a letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs certifying that you are a 100% disabled veteran to qualify for this Exemption.
The surviving spouse of a veteran who met the qualifications listed in 2 and 3 above and who, as of Jan. 1 owns the property that has a Homestead Exemption in place or is eligible for a Homestead Exemption on the property shall be entitled to claim this exemption with the proper certification from the United States Department of Veteran Affairs.
Once granted, this exemption is permanent as long as qualifications are met. However, if you move to a new home you will need to file a new application.
