Principal Residence Exemption (PRE)

If Mackinac Island is your Principal Residence you may qualify to be exempt from some or all of the School Operating millage on your December tax bill. Your “PRE/MBT%” appears under the “Tax Detail” on the middle right hand side of your tax bill.  

To claim Principal Residence, please submit Form 2368 to the Treasurer’s office by November 1st of the year you wish to claim the exemption. We will need proof of Principal Residence, including driver’s license and voter registration.

If you are claiming a Principal Residence elsewhere you will have to rescind (end) that exemption with that local Assessor by submitting Form 2602.

All forms are also available at our office. View the latest Guidelines for the Michigan Principal Residence Exemption program.
