Colorado's Curious Management of its Disabled Veteran Property Tax Exemption

 • Colorado Legislative Council, in describing the disabled veteran property tax exemption on the 2006 ballot:
"Veterans are rated 100-percent permanently disabled when a mental or physical injury makes it impossible for the average person to hold a job and the disability is lifelong."
• Colorado Division of Veterans Affairs:
VA "unemployability' total and permanent disability awards (TDIU, but only permanent and total) not acceptable for disabled veteran property tax exemption."
• Is there a disconnect somewhere in CDMVA? Are we stuck with this Catch-22 situation? Why does only Colorado treat TDIU differently than VA's other total disability rating (100% schedular?)
