If I moved into or out of Michigan during the year, can I claim a homestead property tax credit?

You may be eligible to claim a homestead property tax credit if all of the following apply:

  • Your homestead is in Michigan
  • You were a resident of Michigan for at least six months during the year
  • You own or are contracted to pay rent and occupy a Michigan homestead on which property taxes were levied
  • If you own your home, your taxable value is $135,000 or less
  • Your total household resources are $50,000 or less. Part-year residents must annualize total household resources to determine if the credit reduction applies.
  • If 100% of your total household resources are received from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, you do not qualify
