Oakland County residents may be eligible to receive assistance to purchase and improve a vacant foreclosed property in Oakland County. If your income is within guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and your credit score is 620 or above, you may qualify for the Oakland County Homebuyer Program. For specific information, go to http://www.oakgov.com/chi or call 248-858-1529.

Minor Home Repair Program
The Charter Township of Oxford is working with the Oakland-Livingston Human Service Agency (OLHSA) in providing a Minor Home Repair Program to low-to-moderate income residents in both Oxford Township and Oxford Village. There is a maximum of $5,000.00 available per household per year to cover a variety of projects. This program, funded through limited Community Development Block Grant monies, will operate on a first-come, first-served basis, for all qualifying homeowners. Please call OLHSA’s Dawn Rigg, at 248-209-2769 for more information.

Do you have your principal residence exemption? 
If your principal residence is located in Oxford Township or Oxford Village and you have not filed a principal residence exemption form, please contact the Treasurer’s office as soon as possible. To qualify for a principal residence exemption for the entire tax year of 2017, an owner must live in the property by June 1, 2017. If the current tax bill has 100% in the “% declared as PRE” box on your summer tax bill, then the principal residence exemption has been filed. There recently has been a change to Michigan state law that allows homeowners to receive a partial principal residence exemption if the owner lives in the property as of November 1, 2017.

Are you trying to sell your former vacant Oxford home? 
If your principal residence was located in Oxford Township or Oxford Village and you have not sold your home, you may qualify for a conditional rescission and keep your homestead exemption. A conditional rescission allows an owner to receive a homestead exemption on his/ her current property and on previously exempted property simultaneously if the previous principal residence
(all must apply) is not occupied, is for sale, is not leased and is not used for any business or commercial purposes. To qualify for a conditional rescission for the entire tax year of 2017, the form must be submitted by June 1, 2017 and filed yearly (by December 31 of each year) as long as the situation remains the same. The conditional rescission can not be retroactive.

Homeowners Transferring Property into a Trust 
Those homeowners that legally transfer their property into a trust must file a Property Transfer Affidavit or risk having their Taxable Value uncapped. The uncapping of the taxable value may cause an increase in property taxes. Please call or stop by the treasurer’s office as soon as possible to file this important form.

Principal residence Redemption
If your principal residence is located in Oxford Township or Oxford Village and you have not filed a principal residence exemption form, please contact the Treasurer’s office as soon as possible. To qualify for a principal residence exemption for the entire tax year of 2017, an owner must live in the property by June 1, 2017.
