Frequently Asked Questions: The Veteran owns an apartment building and lives in one of the units. Since the building is designated commercial, can the Veteran claim an exemption on this property?

Question

The Veteran owns an apartment building and lives in one of the units.  Since the building is designated commercial, can the Veteran claim an exemption on this property? 

Answer

No.  The key here is the property designation of commercial.  In order to receive the veteran exemption, the property needs a residential designation.  A residential property could be defined as a single family structure, duplex, triplex,  condominium, townhouse or manufactured structure.  Remember, this qualification may also extend to agricultural homestead sites as well.
