County Legislature Votes To Extend Tax Exemption for Veterans

Cold War Veterans

A special meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature was held last week where they unanimously voted to extend “A Local Law to Extend the Property Tax Exemption” for Cold War Veterans. In 2008, Legislator Steven J. Flotteron, while serving as a Councilman with the Town of Islip, was honored to sponsor this legislation for the first time. Suffolk County adopted their version and combined with the Town portion to provide additional savings for a ten year period. The County did not want these Veterans to lose this valuable benefit.


“It is important to take care of our Veterans, in any way we can. Now, as a County Legislator, I am   privileged to be able to help in extending these benefits for the Veterans of Suffolk County,” said Legislator Flotteron.

Those eligible for this exemption are Veterans who served on active duty for more than 365 days in any of the U.S. Armed Forces during a time of peace between September 2, 1945 and December 26, 1991, have been honorably discharged and have been awarded the Cold War recognition certificate. Also eligible are spouses of Cold War Veterans and the “un-remarried” surviving spouses of deceased Cold War Veterans.
