Homeowners who are selling their homes, but moved into another home elsewhere in the State, get to have two principal resident exemptions. …the St of MI Act provides that an owner may retain an exemption for up to 3 tax years on property previously exempt as principal residence if that property:
• is not occupied;
• is for sale;
• is not leased; and
• is not used for any business or commercial purpose
Big penalty for not rescinding when the old home is sold.
