WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Assessor’s Office reminds all veterans -- as well as widows and widowers of veterans -- to file their DD-214 in the Town Clerk’s Office before Oct. 1 for tax exemption.
The exemption applies to veterans who served during an active period of war for at least 90 days and received an honorable discharge,
The exemption is $6,000 off a property assessment and will be reflected in the July 2015 tax bill.
