Snyder Signs Bill to Aid Low-Income Homeowners w/Poverty Exemptions

Governor Snyder recently signed legislation to simplify the process for low-income residents seeking a property tax exemption on their home.

House Bill 5178 makes it easier to apply for a poverty exemption on a principal residence, ensuring Michigan’s neediest residents get the help they need. The bill allows residents to file an affidavit to claim the exemption, rather than requiring federal and state income tax returns.

Snyder said “this exemption must be easily available to families needing assistance. Low income residents who are not required to file state and federal taxes should not need those documents to receive the exemption.”

The bill is now Public Act 135. Visit www.legislature.mi.gov for more information on this bill and others.
