Disabled Veterans Tax Relief: In 2011, the Virginia General Assembly enacted legislation which provides an exemption from Town of Leesburg real estate taxes on the principal dwelling and up to three acres for veterans with 100 percent service-connected, total and permanent disability. Veterans desiring an exemption on their Town of Leesburg real property tax are required to file the necessary form and provide qualifying documentation to the Loudoun County Commissioner of the Revenue. The exemption is extended to the veteran’s surviving spouse, so long as the death of the veteran occurred on or after January 1, 2011, the real property is maintained as the survivor’s principal residence, and he or she does not remarry.
