Answer

Veteran Benefits If a veteran is 100 percent disabled not due to military service, payments and benefits are included in to property tax credit household income. Veteran payments and benefits include education or training allowances, disability compensation, grants, and insurance proceeds. A letter from the Veterans Administration detailing the amount of your benefits needs to be attached to the Property Tax Credit Schedule (Form MO-PTS).

If a veteran is 100 percent disabled as a result of military service, you are not required to include your veteran payments and benefits on Form MO-PTS. Attach to Form MO-PTS a letter from the Veterans Administration confirming the disability is 100 percent from military service.

If a veteran is less than 100 percent disabled, but is unable to engage in substantial gainful activity due to medical impairment(s) resulting entirely from military service, and such medical impairment(s) can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for at least twelve months, you are not required to include your veteran payments and benefits on Form MO-PTS. Attach to Form MO-PTS a letter from the Veterans Administration confirming the medical impairment(s) resulted entirely from military service and makes you unable to engage in substantial gainful activity.

Note: To request a copy of the letter, call the Veterans Administration at (800) 827-1000.
