Michigan Veteran’s property tax exemption

Did you know?  In 2013 Governor Snyder and the Michigan legislators passed a law that is going to really help disabled veterans quite a bit in the years to come.  If you are a 100% disabled honorably discharged veteran you are exempt from paying Michigan property taxes.  You have to qualify each year for this property tax exemption.

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 valuation that goes with this.  So if you meet one of these criteria you most likely are eligible for the new Michigan disabled veterans property tax exemption.  Take a trip down to your communities treasurer and find out if you are eligible.  If this doesn’t apply to you, but you know a disabled veteran pass this on.  Who knows you may be saving them a lot of money.
