How do Tax Exemptions work for Property Tax? (Veteran)

I am in the process of getting my first house which is in the Hamden area. Does anyone know how veterans property tax exemptions work? I found out that in Connecticut there is a $1500 exemption for property tax purposes but how exactly does it work? My taxes, unfortunately, are going to be $4900 a year. I take it the government isnt that nice to veterans and is giving me $1500 off my property taxes is it? Thatd be great but I get the feeling, being the negative thinker I can be at times and my displeasure for our government, this exemption isnt really going to help in the long run.

Could someone explain it to me? Also, is anyone aware of any other breaks you can get with taxes and what not when you have a home? I only ask because im aware that they arent exactly going to go out of there way to tell you about them, you sort of have to find them on your own or have someone tell you about it.

I think according to Conn state law veterans receive a $1,000 property tax exemption. (altho towns/cities can allow more of an exemption if they wish) I also think in order to qualify you have had to serve in actual combat.

A question like this is probably best answered by the town tax assessor.
