Some disabled veterans living in Michigan could get some relief next tax season under legislation being debated in the state Senate.

One bill would allow cities and townships to provide a tax exemption on a veteran's principal home. To qualify, a veteran would have to be honorably discharged, have a taxable income less than about $23,000 and be 100 percent disabled, a rating determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Another bill would mandate that all local governments provide a tax exemption on homestead property for 100 percent disabled veterans, no matter their income.

Both bills also apply to disabled veterans' surviving spouses.

They recently passed the Senate Finance Committee and are now headed to the Senate floor for consideration.
