On November 12, 2013 Governor Snyder signed into law PA 161 which exempts veterans that were honorably discharged from military service from property taxes on their primary residence when they have met the qualification requirements which are identified below:
Has been determined by the US Dept. of Veterans’ Affairs to be permanently and totally disabled as a result of military service and entitled to veterans’ benefits at the 100% rate.
Has a certificate from the US Veterans’ Administration, or its successors, certifying that he or she is receiving or has received pecuniary assistance due to disability for specially adapted housing.
Has been rated by the US Dept. of Veterans’ Affairs as individually unemployable.
Veterans must file an affidavit yearly, with a copy of the letter from VA stating their percentage rate of disability. You may access a copy of the affidavit by clicking on the “Assessor” tab, then click DAV Affidavit
