What is HPTAP?

The Homeowner’s Property Tax Assistance Program (HPTAP) lowers City of Detroit property taxes for low-income homeowners.

To qualify, your household income must be near or below the poverty line.

This program does not help with back taxes to the Wayne County Treasurer. But by stopping this year’s taxes from piling on, it may make back-taxes easier to pay off!

If you are eligible, you can still apply to have your 2017 property taxes reduced.

The program only lowers taxes for the year you apply. 
You must apply again each year to have your taxes lowered for that year.
