Michigan Disabled Veterans Exempt from Property Taxation
Recent legislation approved by Governor Snyder declares that if you are a disabled veteran owning your own home, you may be exempt from paying property taxes.
In order to be eligible for the exemption, the disabled veteran must have been honorably discharged from the armed forces of the United States. They must be a Michigan resident. Additionally, they must meet one of the following criteria:
(a) Has been determined by the United States department of veterans’ affairs to be permanently and totally disabled as a result of military service and entitled to veterans’ benefits at the 100% rate.
(b) Has a certificate from the United States veterans’ administration, or its successors, certifying that he or she is receiving or has received pecuniary assistance due to disability for specially adapted housing.
(c) Has been rated by the United States department of veterans’ affairs as individually unemployable.
The disabled veteran must have some form of documentation from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to qualify for the exemption. A letter from the County Department of Veterans Affairs indicating they have reviewed their records and the veteran qualifies is insufficient.
The unremarried surviving spouse of the disabled veteran is eligible for the exemption based upon the eligibility of their spouse; therefore, the spouse must also be a Michigan resident. The exemption will continue only as long as the surviving spouse remains unremarried.
For more information regarding this new law which takes effect immediately, please contact Lee Lull, Berrien County Veteran's Service Officer at (269) 983-7111 ext 8118.

Refuse Collection Schedule
Beginning February 1, 2014, Lincoln Charter Township will begin its refuse collection plan that was approved by the Township Board on November 12, 2013.
There is a health and safety benefit as well as a quality of life improvement from this change in terms of having refuse cans only on the street one day a week and that the refuse truck traffic will now be concentrated to one day per week in each segment of the township.
Below is the map which breaks the Township into 2 major Sections:
Section 1-Trash pick up will be on Mondays
Section 2-Trash pickup will be on Thursdays
Your refuse collection company will contact you regarding the pick up day change, if necessary.
A copy of this map will be available for viewing at the Township hall as well as on our Facebook page.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Township Hall at (269) 429-1589
