Filing Due Date for the Homestead Credit Refund (for Homeowners) and Renter's Property Tax Refund

The due date for filing your Homestead Credit Refund (for Homeowners) and Renter's Property Tax Refund return (Form M1PR) is Aug. 15. If the due date falls on a weekend or legal holiday, your return is due by the next business day.

To complete Form M1PR, homeowners need a property tax statement for the current (“taxes payable”) year; renters need a Certificate of Rent Paid (CRP) for the previous year. For details, see the Form M1PR instruction booklet.

Note: You may file Form M1PR and claim a refund for up to one year after the original due date. If you file later, you won’t receive a refund.

When to Expect Your Refund

Renters – If you file by June 15, you should receive your refund by mid-August. Otherwise, you should receive it within 60 days after you file.

Homeowners – If you file by Aug. 1, you should receive your refund by the end of September. Otherwise, you should receive it within 60 days after you file.

You may receive your refund 30 days earlier than the dates listed above if you meet the following conditions:

  • You file Form M1PR electronically instead of by mail, and we receive it by May 15 (for renters) or July 1 (for homeowners).
  • You choose the “direct deposit” option.
  • You filed Form M1PR last year.
  • For renters, you have a Certificate of Rent Paid (CRP) from your landlord(s).
