Tax Break for Vets and Their Families

This week the legislature passed a law increasing property tax exemptions for disabled veterans, and extending breaks for spouses of veterans killed since September 11, 2001. Called the MERIT plan, St.2006, c.260 also provides relief to the communities in which the veterans live, by providing increased reimbursements. This law amends MGL c.59 s.5.
