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, Homestead Credit Refund (for Homeowners) and Renter's Property Tax Refund, 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.
