I have not been claiming a homestead exemption on my home. What should I do?

With the exception of conditional rescinds, recent tax law changes allow the Township to correct the homestead status for the current year, and with Board of Review approval, three prior years. After Board of Review approval, if you are due a refund from prior year’s tax payments, your refund will be issued by the Ingham County Treasurers Office.

To correct your exemption, please complete a PRE application and submit to the Assessor’s Office as soon as possible. Also, please make sure we are alerted that your property PRE status needs a correction.
