Michigan

Program Overview

Michigan’s Homestead Property Tax Credit is how the State of Michigan can help pay some of your property taxes. Homestead refers to the place where you have your permanent home. The credit, for most people, is based on a comparison between property taxes and total household resources. Homeowners pay property taxes directly, while renters pay them indirectly with their rent. The maximum credit is $1,500. Renters age 65+, whose rent is more than 40% of their total household resources, may qualify for an alternative credit. Homeowners may also be eligible for a Principal Resident Exception that exempts taxes levied by a local school district.
