2011 Senate Bill 349: Revise May 1 homestead property tax exemption deadline

Public Act 114 of 2012

Introduced by Sen. Dave Hildenbrand (R) on April 28, 2011
To grant a homestead property tax exemption after May 1 to a person who acquires and occupies a homestead for which an exemption was not already on the tax roll on May 1. Under current law, if an owner has not filed the principal residence (homestead) property tax exemption for a residence by May 1, then the property tax exemption does not apply until the following year. The bill would prorate the tax exemption based on how much of the tax year has passed since the May 1 date.   Official Text and Analysis.
