Voters rejected an All Veterans Tax Credit by a 31-20 margin
WHITEFIELD — Voters rejected an All Veterans Tax Credit by a 31-20 margin at Whitefield Town Meeting. It would have expanded eligibility for the town’s $500 tax credit from veterans who served in qualifying wars or conflicts to all veterans who served at least 90 days and were honorably discharged. Selectman John Tholl, a military veteran, said the financial impact of the All Veterans Tax Credit could not be measured because the town lacks a veterans census. If large numbers of veterans qualified for the tax credit, he warned, it could significantly increase the tax burden for non-veterans.
