Homeowners Need More Opportunities to Get Property Tax Exemptions
Eligible homeowners should have ample, and well-advertised, opportunities to apply for the city of Detroit’s property tax exemption (PTE), the Homeowner’s Property Tax Assistance Program, which can eliminate current year taxes for homeowners with low incomes. Property tax exemption workshops should be held in community centers across the city, and plenty of government and nonprofit staff should be trained to help residents complete their application.
