A North Carolina legislator has filed a bill that could provide millions of dollars of tax relief to the state’s disabled veterans.
Rep. Nelson Dollar, a Wake County Republican, introduced the bill Wednesday with cosponsors Reps. Jason Saine of Lincoln County, Jon Hardister of Guilford County and Rena Turner of Iredell County.
If approved by the General Assembly, the bill would increase the homestead exemption for North Carolina veterans who have a “permanent and total” service-connected disability rating of 100 percent from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
