Can an apartment be filed as a homestead credit

Yes, renters qualify for the Michigan Homestead Credit.

You may claim a property tax credit if all of the following apply:

  • Your homestead is in Michigan
  • You were a resident of Michigan for at least six months during the year
  • You own or are contracted to pay rent and occupy a Michigan homestead on which property taxes were levied
  • If you own your home, your taxable value is $135,000 or less (unless unoccupied farmland)
  • Your total household resources are $60,000 or less (part year residents must annualize total household resources to determine if a credit reduction applies)

Your rent payments are your documentation.
