My understanding is that your aunt may be exempt from INCOME taxes, given the facts you present above. I do not believe there is a property tax exemption for seniors in Michigan. However, given her circumstances, she may qualify for a substantial homestead property tax credit, which would effectively result in little or no taxes, and might result in refunds for her.
No, she is not exempt from paying property tax.
