To calculate your credit, first divide the allowance from Table 1                         result by the millage rate on the homestead. For example, you are
above by the taxable value of your homestead. The result is a                             a pensioned veteran and rent your home for $395 per month. Your
percentage. Multiply this percentage by the property taxes levied on                      local assessor tells you the millage rate for your home is 56 mills
your homestead to arrive at your credit (maximum $1,200).                                 (.056 or $56 for every $1,000 of taxable value). Compute the
Homeowner’s example: You are a 90 percent disabled veteran, age                           credit as follows:
66, with household income of $20,000. Your home has a taxable                                 $395 monthly rent x 12 = $4,740 yearly rent
value of $15,000 and the property tax is $750. As a disabled veteran                          $4,740 x .20 = $948 taxes attributable to rent
your taxable value allowance (TVA) from Table 1 above is $4,500.
                                                                                              $948 / .056 (millage rate) = $16,929 (taxable value)
Compute the credit as follows:
                                                                                              $3,500 TVA (from Table 1) / $16,929 (taxable value) =
     $4,500 TVA (from Table 1) / $15,000                                                      20.67% (.2067) refundable
     30% refundable (.30)
                                                                                              $948 property taxes x .2067 = $196 credit
     $750 property taxes x .30 = $ 225 credit
                                                                                          Reminder: Blind people who rent their homestead do not qualify
Renter’s example: The taxable value of the rented homestead is                            for credit on Form MI-1040CR-2 and should file as totally and
determined by multiplying your rent by 20 percent and dividing the                        permanently disabled persons on Form MI-1040CR.
