PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTION FOR DISABLED VETERANS

As you maybe aware,  Michigan disabled veterans are now eligible for full property tax exemption following the signing of P.A. 161 by the Governor.  As we move forward with the implementation of this exemption, we are looking to get the word out to all disabled veterans.  Please see the Disabled Veterans Exemption Affidavit link below which is required to be filed annually with the local assessor along with a yearly letter (sample link below) from the Department of Veterans Affairs addressing the veterans type and percentage of disability, receipt of pecuniary assistance for specially adapted housing or declaring an individual unemployable.

Please note that as part of this new legislation,  it is retroactive to include the 2013 tax year, so it is imperative that the affidavit is submitted to the local assessor prior to July 10, 2014 to be eligible for the 2013 tax year.
