Michigan Property Tax Relief

If you have purchased a new home in Michigan and are still sitting on another Michigan home which you cannot sell in this market, you may be able take advantage of legislation passed earlier this year. Under the new law, a seller can retain an additional personal residence exemption (previously knows as the homestead exemption) for up to three years on property previously exempt as the owner's principal residence if the property is not occupied, is for sale, is not leased, and is not used for any business or commercial purpose. Property qualifying for a personal residence exemption is exempt from the 18 mill tax levied by local school districts for school operating purposes.
