Poverty Exemptions

Michigan law (MCL 211.7u) provides for a reduction in property taxes for eligible, low-income homeowners. Every city and township must offer an application process and set eligibility requirements that are no more restrictive than the federal poverty guidelines.

Applications must be filed annually at the March, July, or December Boards of Review. Contact your local city or township assessor for specific dates. You must submit a copy of your recently filed income tax returns with your application. Free income tax assistance is available for qualifying households.
