Legislation helping residents in hardship gets unanimous approval
LANSING — State Representative Phil Cavanagh’s (D-Redford) bill, House Bill 4882, passed the Michigan House of Representatives unanimously today.
House Bill 4882 — or, as Cavanagh refers to it, the distressed taxpayers bill — authorizes a county treasurer to create a delinquent property tax installment plan for a principal residence, the title to which is held by a financially distressed person. Upon successful completion of the installment plan the county treasurer shall then waive any incurred penalties and interest, which compounds the hardship when a distressed property owner falls behind on their tax bill.
“I worked with the Michigan Association of County Treasurers on this bill to ensure that residents who have fallen on hard times will be able to save their home from tax foreclosure. While I expected it to pass on third reading, I am ecstatic that it passed with unanimous support from my colleagues,” Cavanagh said.
Please let me know how I can be of assistance to you so that together, we can continue to make progress in our community.
