Are you a lakefront home owner and a 100% disabled American veteran that has been honorably discharged?  You are most likely eligible for a Michigan property tax exemption.

The State of Michigan legislators and the governor recently passed a law allowing for disabled veterans who were honorably discharged to apply for an exemption from real estate property taxes. In order to qualify, the veteran must meet one of the following three criteria:

(a) Has been determined by the United States Department of Veterans’ Affairs to be permanently and totally disabled as a result of military service and entitled to veterans’ benefits at the 100% rate.

(b) Has a certificate from the United States Veterans’ Administration, or its successors, certifying that he or she is receiving or has received pecuniary assistance due to disability for specially adapted housing.

(c) Has been rated by the United States Department of Veterans’ Affairs as individually unemployable.


There is no asset or means test to determine eligibility for the exemption, but you must apply annually for the exemption..  So check with your local tax assessor to see if you are eligible for the Michigan property tax exemption for disabled veterans.   Get the form you need so you can gather the paperwork needed so you do not have to pay your Michigan property tax.  If you are not a disabled veteran please send this or share this with a Michigan disabled veteran so they can save on taxes.
