DDS: Information for Disabled Veterans Who Need to Obtain VA Verification For Tax Assessment Purposes

INFORMATION FOR DISABLED VETERANS WHO NEED TO  OBTAIN
 VA VERIFICATION FOR TAX ASSESSMENT PURPOSES
 
 
Effective this tax year, the Federal VA will no longer automatically mail to you VA Form 20-5455, “Statement of Benefit Payment Records,” for submission to your local Tax Assessor for tax abatement credit.  You must now request on your own a Letter of Disability Verification from the VA Regional Office in Newington through one of the below methods and submit this letter to your Tax Assessor immediately upon receipt. 
 
You must include in your request your full name, VA claim number (or Social Security number if not known), and your complete mailing address.
