Treasury: Deadline for Michigan Home Heating Credit in Two Weeks

The Home Heating Credit helps cover utility expenses, leaving more money available for other critical needs.

The novel coronavirus has created more worry for homeowners already struggling as many are facing food insecurity and trying to decide which bill they need to prioritize and pay next. That’s where things like the Michigan Home Heating Credit come in and can be of assistance.

The Home Heating Credit helps cover utility expenses, leaving more money available for other critical needs. It is designed to aid senior citizens; low-income, deaf, disabled or blind residents; and disabled veterans, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury.

All Home Heating Credit applications must be received by Sept. 30.

“If you’re eligible for the Home Heating Credit and haven’t yet applied, please submit your application today,” state Treasurer Rachael Eubanks said. “This beneficial tax credit is a way for the state of Michigan to provide some financial assistance for heating expenses, especially as winter approaches.”

Eligible individuals typically file a Home Heating Credit application when completing their individual income tax return. Applicants do not need to file a state income tax return to receive this assistance and may submit the application only.

How do you know if you qualify? According to Michigan.gov:

You may qualify for a home heating credit if all of the following apply:

  • You own or were contracted to pay rent and occupied a Michigan homestead
  • You were not a full-time student who was claimed as a dependent on another person’s return
  • You did not live in college or university operated housing for the entire year
  • You did not live in a licensed care facility for the entire year
  • Your income was within the limits in Table A and Table B

Note: You may be required to submit documentation to support your claim.

The Home Heating Credit application form can be obtained at michigan.gov/taxes.  Additional information can be found on the Home Heating Credit website.
