Florida Veterans get VA Disability Verification Letters

Posted:

In 2007, VA paid nearly $2.9 billion in compensation and pensions to eligible veterans and surviving spouses in the state of Florida. In 2008, the Department of Veterans Affairs VA resolved to work even more closely with the state of Florida to ensure veterans get all the information they need to take advantage of the state's annual tax relief.

The Department of Veterans Affairs sent out disability verification letters to more than 265,000 Florida veterans and surviving spouses who may be eligible for state or local tax exemptions. Some state tax laws provide veterans and their surviving spouses with state, county or local tax relief. VA assists veterans to receive these benefits by providing letters verifying their military service and disability evaluations.

Although veterans can obtain these verification letters at any time by contacting their nearest VA regional office, the VA performed a special computer run to automatically generate these letters for Florida veterans. Now, Florida veterans do not have to make a special request to obtain this verification.

Any veteran who receives VA disability compensation, but does not receive a letter or has any questions about the information contained in the letter should contact their local VA Regional Office by calling VA's toll-free number, 1-800-827-1000. VA encourages veterans and their families to check the letters carefully and contact VA if they have any concerns. Florida veterans and survivors are advised to contact their county property tax appraiser's office on the Internet or tax collectors office with any questions about Florida state tax abatement programs.

In addition to the VA regional office in St. Petersburg, the Department operates seven major medical centers, 43 outpatient clinics, five benefits offices, and 12 Vet Centers on behalf of Florida's 1.8 million veterans.
