The Cold War Veterans' Exemption - RPTL 458b

If you are an honorably-discharged American veteran, having served during the period known as the "cold war," which is defined in NYS Real Property Tax Law as September 2, 1945 through December 26, 1991, received a Cold War Veterans' Certificate, do not receive any other veterans' real property exemption and own property in Scarsdale, you may be eligible for this partial real property tax exemption.

For those veterans disabled as a result of their service, there is an additional benefit entitlement available under this program. This exemption runs for 10 years and requires the filing of an application (PDF), along with proof of service. The deadline for filing an exemption application for Scarsdale residents is May 1.
