Gopal Urges Veterans to Take Advantage of Income Tax Exemption

The Veteran Income Tax Exemption allows eligible veterans to receive a $3,000 exemption on their income tax.

If you are a veteran who was honorably discharged from the United States Armed Forces, or if you are the spouse of a veteran who passed away in 2017, you are eligible for this exemption.

To claim the Veteran Income Tax Exemption, you must fill out a submission form and send it to the New Jersey Division of Taxation along with a Certificate of Release of Discharge from Active Duty. You will not be able to claim this exemption without completing this application process.

This is a well-deserved tax break for our veterans and I want to ensure every veteran in the district can take advantage of it. Our office is available for assistance with the application process.
