Important News For Surviving Spouses in VA

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

One of the ballot issues in the recent Virginia election was a proposed amendment to the Virginia Constitution to exempt surviving spouses of military service members killed in action from real estate property taxes on their primary residence. 

The amendment passed overwhelming with 87% of the voters voting YES to the change.

Read more details on the new Virginia Constitutional amendment.

Though this doesn't remove the pain of the loss of a loved one, it may provide some small financial relief.

Cindy- I like this idea. Nothing we can do could ever replace their loss, but we can sure try to express our appreciation.  Good going Virginia!

Cindy, I'm glad that went through.  Every jurisdiction should have this.  It's the very least we can do for the families of the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.
