The City of Detroit will now offer 25% exemptions on residential property taxes starting this year, Mayor Mike Duggan announced today. The 25% property tax exemption is an additional option to the 50% and 100% property tax exemptions already offered to income qualifying Detroit homeowner occupants. This newly added exemption option will increase the number of Detroiters eligible for financial support who otherwise wouldn’t qualify for The Homeowners Property Tax Assistance Program (HPTAP). Applications are being accepted beginning January 8, 2020. Applications are available online. Applications also may be requested to be sent by mail, by phone 313-224-3035 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
