Hardship Exemption

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.

Hardship exemptions allow eligible homeowners a one-year property tax exemption granted by their township Board of Review.

• Hardship Exemption must be filed annually.

• Homeowners must be below the poverty guideline set by their township Board.

• The owner of the property must be its principal resident

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