 Home Heating Credit
Who May Claim a Credit

This credit helps low income families pay their home heating costs. To see if you may claim a credit, answer the following questions:

  • Are you a full-time student who is claimed as a dependent on another person's income tax return?
  • Did you live in a licensed care facility for the entire year?
If you answered YES to either of these questions, you CANNOT claim a home heating credit.

If you answered NO to BOTH questions, you may claim a credit if:

  • Your homestead is in Michigan,
  • You own or rent the home where you live, AND
  • Your income is within the income limits

You can have only one homestead at a time, and you must be the occupant as well as the owner or renter. Your homestead can be a rented apartment, or a mobile home on a lot in a mobile home park. A vacation home or income property is not considered your homestead. Your homestead is in your state of domicile. Domicile is the place where you have your permanent home. It is the place you plan to return to whenever you go away. Even if you spend the winter in a southern state, your domicile is still Michigan. College students and others whose permanent homes are not in Michigan are not Michigan residents. Domicile continues until you establish a new permanent home.

Note: You cannot file a home heating credit claim for any other tax year.

Important Information About the Home Heating Credit

Michigan's home heating credit is funded by federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program Grants. Your credit may be larger or smaller than the credit you received last year, because the amount of money Michigan receives from this grant varies every year.

For more information, see the Michigan Treasury Website.
