I am often surprised to hear from veterans who are not taking advantage of their state provided vet benefits. In some cases it's due to not knowing that states offer benefits beyond those offered by the Federal Department of Veteran Affairs. I think in most cases it is due to the confusing red-tape.
Each week this blog will highlight a different state with the goal of helping veterans discover their great untapped state benefits.
This Week: Sweet Home Alabama!
Veterans residing in the state of Alabama have access to several benefits including veteran homes, tax exemptions, veteran employment preference, business license fee exemptions, reduced fees for fishing licenses and more.
