Home Heating Tax Credit Application Due Sept. 30

Heating your home can get expensive, especially if you’re a low income family.

Pic0If you have not applied, the deadline for the Home Heating Tax Credit is due Friday, Sept. 30.

“This credit assists low income households with energy costs over the past year,” said Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency Tax Program Manager Meg Havenga.

If approved, applicants receive a refundable credit that comes back to the homeowner based on how many people are in your household, as well as your income.

NMCAA says 700 households have applied locally and have received over $400,000 back.

“If you are a low income household and you think you qualify from this credit, even if you aren’t really going to file a tax return, we can definitely do this for you,” said Havenga.

NMCAA has appointments available until the application deadline on Sept. 30. You can find out more information on NMCAA’s tax preparation program here.
