Many people are unaware of special exemptions that apply under Michigan law.
Under MCL 211.7b, the homestead of a disabled veteran who was discharged under honorable conditions is exempted from all property taxes. To qualify, the veteran must have one of the following:
- a 100% disability rating based on a service-related disability
- a certificate from the VA for monetary assistance for specially adapted housing, or
- a rating by the VA as "individually unemployable."
There are numerous other exemptions under Chapter 211 as well.
