The Boards of Review meet in March, July, and December. It is a Michigan statutory requirement that citizens may petition at one of these meetings for tax exemption for the current year. An application and extensive documentation is required, including last year’s tax returns. Asset limits vary. Some communities require or recommend you appear before the Board of Review so the Board can ask you questions and allow you to explain medical expenses and other special circumstances. Property tax exemptions can be granted only for the current year, not back taxes* You must reapply each year. Tax exemptions are typically approved if your income from the previous year was below the income level. If you are slightly over, unusual circumstances or expenses may help the board decide in your favor. The property tax exemption granted may be partial or total. Some communities advertise their poverty tax exemption via the Macomb Daily, flyers, Cable TV, minutes, a website, or by mailing applications to people who applied the year before. Note: if you are over the income limit for property tax exemption, you may qualify for a tax credit: a tax reduction or cash payment to you of up to $1200 per year to help you pay your taxes. Consult your tax advisor or a helping agency, such as the Community Action Agencies, who may help you file for the credit. *If you were not granted exemptions and you have not been receiving the tax credit every year, you can file amended returns for the past 4 years and could get up to $4800.
