MI Treasury Warns of Home Heating Credit Application Deadline

If you qualify for it, and want to make sure that you have the best chance to get it, time is running out on the application process for the Michigan Home Heating Credit as we race toward cooler weather.

The Michigan Department of Treasury says that all applications for the credit must be received by the end of the month, Wednesday, September 30, 2020.

That means that qualified homeowners or renters have just two weeks remaining to apply for Michigan’s Home Heating Credit.

The Home Heating Credit helps cover utility expenses, leaving more money available for other critical needs. It is designed to aid senior citizens, low income, deaf, disabled or blind persons, and disabled veterans.

State Treasurer Rachael Eubanks says, “If you’re eligible for the Home Heating Credit and haven’t yet applied, please submit your application today.” She adds, “This beneficial tax credit is a way for the state of Michigan to provide some financial assistance for heating expenses, especially as winter approaches.”

Eligible individuals typically file a Home Heating Credit application when completing their individual income tax return, however applicants do not need to file a state income tax return in order to receive this assistance and may submit the application only.
