The Board of Education adopts the Alternative Veterans Exemption, permitting exemptions of 15%, an additional 10%, and 50% of the veteran's disability rating as determined by the Veterans Administration or Department of Defense, for wartime veterans, combat veterans, and veterans who sustained a service-related disability, respectively, pursuant to the following maximum exemption amounts: 
Wartime $6,000
Combat $10,000
Disability $20,000

This local law shall be available to eligible veterans for the 2020-21 school tax year and shall continue until rescinded or amended by resolution of the Board of Education.
