North Carolina General Statute 105-277.1C excludes the first forty-five thousand dollars ($45,000) of the appraised value of the permanent residence owned and occupied by a North Carolina resident, who is a qualified Honorably Discharged Veteran or surviving spouse.

These statutory requirements must be met:

1. Permanent resident of Henderson County
2. Character of separation was honorable or under honorable conditions
3. Either 100% permanent and total disability that is service-connected or
    received benefits for specially adapted housing because of a service-connected disability(38 USC 2101)
4. Surviving spouse who has not remarried of either (1) a disabled Veteran, (2) a Veteran
    who died as a result of a service connected disability whose character of service at
    separation was honorable or under honorable conditions, or (3) a service member who
    died from a service connected condition in the line of duty and not as a result of willful

Disabled Veterans and surviving spouses must submit NCDVA-9 Certification Form when making application. Disabled Veterans making application under 38 USC 2101, must show acceptable proof from the Veterans Administration.

The NCDVA-9 Certification Form must be obtained from the Assessor’s Office. For assistance in completing the NCDVA-9 Certification Form and submitting to the regional VA office, please contact:
