Disabled Veterans-New State Tax Law

Published 06 February 14 06:34 PM

This is news worth knowing for any family member or friend that is a disabled veteran, no more real estate taxes!  Yes, that's right, the State of Michigan recently passed a law allowing for disabled veterans who were honorably discharged to apply for an exemption from real estate property taxes. The exemption must be filed every year and the veteran must meet 1 of the following 3 criteria:

1.  The United States Department of Veterans' Affairs has determined that the veteran is permanently and totally disabled as a result of military service and entitled to veterans' benefits at the 100% rate.

 2.  The veteran has a certificate from the U.S. Veterans' Administration, or its successors, certifying that he or she is receiving or has received pecuniary assistance due to disability for specially adapted housing.

3.  The U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs has rated the veteran as individually unemployable.

Where to get this form?  The State of Michigan State Tax Commission has an affidavit form for the disabled veteran to file with their local assessor.

Great news to pass on to a disabled veteran that has given so much to our county.
