Question

I have a veteran who was previously qualified, used their $800, moved to Montana for 4 years and has now returned to our county and would like to apply again.  Does he have to re-establish residency by living here for three years? 

Answer

Yes.  According to WS 39-13-105(a), a veteran has to be a “bona fide Wyoming residents for at least three (3) years at the time of claiming the exemption…”.  Consequently, if the veteran moved and took residency in another state for any period of time, he or she would have to re-establish their Wyoming residency requirement.
