How do I compute my homestead property tax credit if I got married during the year?
If you married during the tax year and are filing a Homestead Property Tax Credit Claim MI-1040CR, combine each spouse's share of taxes or rent for the period of time he or she lived in separate homesteads. Then add the prorated share of taxes or rent for the time you live together in your marital home.
You can use Form 2105, Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credits for Separated or Divorced Taxpayers, to help you prorate the share of taxes or rent used to complete the homestead property tax credit.
You will need to submit a completed Form 5049, Worksheet for Married, Filing Separately and Divorced or Separated Claimants.
