Disabled Veterans Program available

Cameron Parish Assessor, Scott Lavergne, would like to make Disabled Veterans aware of a new program that was put into law for 2023 that provides them with an additional homestead exemption.

Any Veteran with a service-connected disability rating of 50% or more is eligible for this benefit.

50% – 69% Disability Rating = Additional $25,000 Exemption.

70% – 99% Disability Rating = Additional $45,000 Exemption.

100% Disability Rating = Total Exemption from all eligible property taxes.

Applicants must provide their proof of disability (Form A-25) from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

This benefit can be applied for during regular business hours Monday through Friday at our office located at 110 Smith Circle – Suite A in Cameron
