In the State of Michigan, If you are a homeowner, who is a senior citizen over 71 years of age, & is considered low income (under $10,000.00 annually). Can you be completely exempt from paying property taxes or is there any help for seniors in this area at all. Detroit, Michigan.

Thanks!

  1. No, if you own a home, you owe property taxes like everyone else. Sorry. kliszlaw.com Tim Klisz


  2. No, you would still need to pay property tax.

  3. Not totally exempt, but you can get a refund of all homestead property taxes in excess of 3.5% of your income. At $10,000 annually, that would be $350. Most areas allow you to defer your summer tax due date so you can apply for that credit before the winter taxes are due.
