The Owner-Occupied credit is a real estate tax reduction available on the homeowner’s principal residence for owning and occupying the property.
To receive the Owner Occupancy credit, you must own and occupy your home as your principal place of residence (domicile) on January 1 of the year you file for the reduction. A homeowner and spouse are entitled to this tax reduction on only one home, unless they can establish that they are domiciled separately. A person only has one principal place of residence. Your principal place of residence determines, among other things, where you are registered to vote and where you declare residency for income tax purposes.
To apply, an Owner-Occupied credit application (DTE105C) form, must be filed with the Auditor after the first Monday in January and on or before December 31 in the year for which application is sought.
