I was receiving the Homestead Exemption on my house but I sold it and bought a different one. Do I have to apply under the new homestead exemption program and show my income?
No. For individuals who received the homestead exemption for tax year 2013 (2014 for manufactured and mobile homes) on any residence may continue to receive the homestead exemption on another residence within the state without meeting the income test currently required for the exemption, if a different residence otherwise meets the qualification of a homestead. In order to assure that an applicant has previously received the homestead exemption for the aged or disabled, certain information must be made available to the county auditor. Please obtain a DTE Form 105G from the county auditor and file with the county auditor at the time the property is purchased. You can also download a DTE Form 105G (PDF) form online.
