As of 2013, real property used and owned as a homestead by a disabled veteran who was honorably discharged from the United States armed forces is exempt from taxation. The unremarried surviving spouse of a disabled veteran is also eligible for this tax exemption program. To receive an exemption the veteran or his surviving spouse must annually file the Disabled Veterans Exemption Affidavit with the Rochester Hills Assessing Department and must satisfy the specific eligibility requirements listed on the application.
