COLUMBUS—State Representative Candice Keller (R-Middletown) today applauded the Ohio House’s passage of legislation granting certain veterans’ organizations an exemption from property taxes.


House Bill 24, sponsored by Rep. Tim Ginter (R-Salem), expands a current tax exemption for property to qualifying 501(c)(4) veterans’ organizations that are exempt from federal income tax. Property that is not used for meetings, administrative needs, or to provide programs or services is excluded from this exemption.


“I was honored to vote in favor of House Bill 24, extending a tax exemption to qualifying 501(c)(4) veterans’ organizations,” said Keller. “Veterans are truly some of the greatest Americans we have, and we thank them daily for their sacrifices. The burdens on veterans returning home are large enough already, and my hope is that we can make their load a little lighter.”


House Bill 24 now heads to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
