With Veterans Day approaching on Nov. 11, the Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury) reminds current and former military members about the special benefits they may be entitled to receive.

“Our service men and women make great sacrifices to keep us safe,” State Treasurer Nick Khouri said. “Treasury works closely with our military members and veterans to ensure they receive the tax relief and other special benefits provided under state law.”

Current and former military members may be eligible to receive:

“Michigan is home to 608,000 military veterans who served and sacrificed time away from their loved ones to ensure our freedoms and way of life,” said Michigan Veterans Affairs Director James Robert Redford. “While we cannot ever fully repay that debt of gratitude, we do strive to give back to our veterans by helping connect them to benefits and services that they have earned and deserve. MVAA appreciates Treasury’s continued support in that effort by offering numerous tax incentives to ease the tax burden on our veterans and their families.”
