Prisoners of Wars and Surviving Spouses

Vehicles owned and registered or leased by formerEastham Town Seal prisoners of war, or their surviving spouses, are exempt from the motor vehicle excise if the Veterans Administration, or the veteran’s discharge, documents that the veteran was held as a prisoner of war.  The exemption is based on whether the individual meets these standards, not whether the person has or qualifies for a prisoner of war plate under RMV regulations.

A surviving spouse of a former prisoner of war may receive the exemption until remarriage.  A former prisoner of war, or surviving spouse, who qualifies and owns or leases more than one vehicle for personal, non-business use may have the exemption applied to the vehicle of choice.
