Michigan Disabled Veterans Receive Extension To Apply For Property Tax Exemption

In mid-November, disabled veterans were given a new opportunity to apply for property tax exemptions in Michigan.

The December deadline came and went before many even knew about the opportunity.

Now, disabled vets will have longer to apply for the exemption.

The exemption has been extended to July 2014.

Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency Director Jeff Barnes said:

Our office has fielded phone calls and emails from veterans across the state who were afraid they were going to miss out on this for 2013.  I’m very happy to be able to deliver this great news to them – that they will be able to apply in July 2014 for the 2013 credit.

The exemptions that took effect last month brought some changes.

Totally disabled military veterans are exempt from property taxes on their primary residence. The exemption also includes a disabled veteran’s spouse, if the veteran dies before the tax break is granted.

Previously, a veteran could qualify for a property tax exemption only if he or she was receiving assistance for specially adapted housing.
