Who qualifies for a homestead property tax credit?

You may qualify for a homestead property tax credit if all of the following apply:

  • You own or were contracted to pay rent and occupied a Michigan homestead for at least 6 months during the year on which property taxes and/or service fees were levied
  • If you own your home, your taxable value was $135,000 or less
  • Your total household resources were $60,000 or less. Part-year residents must annualize total household resources to determine if
    the credit reduction applies.
  • If 100% of your total household resources were received from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, you do not
    qualify

Note: You may be required to submit documentation to support your claim. See Homeowners or Renters Checklist
