    As you all are aware, the veteran exemption statute was amended last year to include more dates during the cold war. I recently received a message through the RIAAO contact page from State Representative Camille Vella-Wilkinson regarding a concern that some municipalities are not properly applying the exemption. Her message is as follows:

    “The RI General Assembly passed a law in 2021 regarding property tax exemptions for Cold War Veterans that is not being uniformly applied by RI municipalities. The Speaker of the House recommended I contact you to have a notice sent to all RI towns and cities directing compliance with the new law.”

    I responded and let her know I would get this message out to the members. I also suggested she call me to discuss any specifics. I will update this post if/when I hear back from her.

    Chris, Do we know what is not being done properly? Is it some communities are now recognizing the amendment to the law?

    I did respond to Rep Vella-Wilkinson and asked if she would like to discuss specifics with me. I have not heard back, but if/when I do, I will post here.
