Understanding Impact of the Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit
The increase in taxes could potentially be offset by the Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit. Below is a summary of the revised Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit:
Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit – Households that pay homestead property taxes greater than 3.2% of their annual income may be eligible for Michigan’s Homestead Property Tax Credit. Eligible households may deduct up to 60% (up to 100% for senior citizens, please see the senior credit table below) of the millage increase cost up to a $1,500 Homestead Tax Credit limit. The eligibility for the credit begins to decrease after household income exceeds $51,001 and ends completely after the household income exceeds $60,001. Please see below the general reduction table and senior credit table below:
