[Code 1975, § 31-2; Code 1992, § 28-4; 12-11-2000 by Ord. No. 1179; 10-23-2006 by Ord. No. 1271; 11-9-2009 by Ord. No. 1304]
Section 31 of the Uniform City Income Tax Ordinance (MCL 141.631) adopted in § 44-31 is hereby amended to read as follows:
(1) 
An individual taxpayer in computing his or her taxable income is allowed a deduction of $600 for tax years beginning after 2006 and prior to 2001, $1,200 for tax years 2001 through 2006, for each personal and dependency exemption under the rules for determining exemptions and dependents as provided in the Federal Internal Revenue Code. The taxpayer may claim his or her spouse and dependents as exemptions, but if the taxpayer and the spouse are both subject to the tax imposed by this article, the number of exemptions claimed by each of them when added together shall not exceed the total number of exemptions allowed under this article.
(2) 
For tax years 1988 through 2008, an additional exemption is allowed under Subsection 31(1) for a taxpayer who is 65 years of age or older or who is blind as defined in Section 504 of the Income Tax Act of 1967, Public Act No. 281 of 1967 (MCL 206.504), or if the taxpayer is both 65 years of age or older and blind, two additional exemptions are allowed under Subsection 31(1).[1]

(3) 
For tax years beginning after 2008, an additional exemption is allowed for each of the following for which the taxpayer qualifies:
(a) 
A taxpayer who is a paraplegic, quadriplegic, or hemiplegic, or who is a totally or permanently disabled person as defined in Title II, Section 216 of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. 416.
(b) 
A taxpayer who is blind as defined in Section 504 of the Income Tax Act of 1967, Act No. 281 of the Public Acts of 1967, being Section 206.504 of the Michigan Compiled Laws.
(c) 
A taxpayer who is a deaf person as defined in Section 2 of the Deaf Persons' Interpreters Act, Act No. 204 of the Public Acts of 1982, being Section 393.502 of the Michigan Compiled Laws.
(d)

(4) 
An exemption is allowed under Subsection 31(1)[2] to a person with respect to whom a deduction under Section 151 of the Internal Revenue Code is allowable to another federal taxpayer during the tax year and is therefore not considered to have a federal personal exemption under Subsection 31(1).
