The Michigan Department of Treasury is now processing Michigan Home Heating Credits (HHC) for the 2016 tax year.
The credit assists low-income customers with winter energy bills and the average credit last year was $132.
Forms and instructional materials are available on the Internet at michigan.gov/incometax or by calling 517-636-4486.
Forms are also available at many libraries, post offices, and Department of Health and Human Services branch offices across the state.
Note that you can apply for the Home Heating Credit even if you do not need to file income taxes.
