Legislator Susan A. Berland Sponsors Resolution Providing Tax Exemption To Veterans

Suffolk County Legislator Susan A. Berland, Chairwoman of the Legislature’s Veterans Committee, was proud to sponsor IR 1768 A Local Law To Provide Property Tax Exemption For Certain Veterans Who Participated In Operation Graphic Hand which passed unanimously through the full Legislature at the November 20, 2018 General Meeting. This resolution provides property tax exemptions for Reserve Component veterans activated by Operation Graphic Hand, a joint military operation executed through Presidential executive order in March 1970. Due to a postal worker strike in New York City, active duty and reserve service members facilitated mail delivery in the New York metropolitan area to avoid a national mail crisis.

“I am proud to have sponsored this resolution to provide some economic relief to those who have served our Country,” said Legislator Berland. “I want to thank my colleagues on the Legislature for their support of this resolution and for recognizing that Suffolk County veterans are entitled to the same benefits as their counterparts in Nassau County. Honorable service is honorable service, and those veterans who were activated by Operation Graphic Hand deserve the benefits they are now entitled to and we thank them for their service.”
