Disabled Veterans Exemption
The 100% Disabled Veterans Exemption provides for exemption of the full Fair Cash Value (Market) 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 Headquarters, 5th floor, 218 W. Sixth St., Tulsa, OK, 74119. 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. Also, the unremarried spouse of a veteran killed in action may qualify for the exemption.
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.
