ORDINANCE FOR PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTION FOR DISABLED VETERANS

WHEREAS, the Wise County Board of Supervisors has the authority as set forth in Section 58.1-3506a(19) to set apart as a separate class of property, one automobile owned and regularly used by a veteran who is 100% disabled as certified by the department of Veterans Affairs.  Said property shall be a separate class of property and shall constitute a classification for local taxation separate from other classifications of other tangible property so long as the statutory definition as defined in 58.1-3506A(19).

WHEREAS, the person applying under this article shall provide a written statement to the Commissioner of the Revenue or other assessing officers from the Department of Veterans Affairs, that the veteran has been properly designated or classified by the Department of Veterans Affairs, so as to meet the requirements of this section and verify that his/her disability is service connected. Further, the person applying under this article shall file annually with the Commissioner of the Revenue forms to be supplied by Wise County verifying that such disability is continuing.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Wise County Board of Supervisors hereby ordain that one automobile of a qualified veteran is declared to be a separate class of property and shall constitute a classification for local taxation separate from other classifications as set forth in Section 58.1-3506A(19).  Further, it is ordained that Wise County shall levy tax on the subject property not to exceed that applicable to the general class of tangible personal property.

The Wise County Board of Supervisors, by this Ordinance, grant the tax relief of $100.00 toward levies on one motor vehicle owned and used by disabled veterans as set forth above.

Adopted this 14th day of May 1998.
