(WXYZ) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Thursday evening signed an executive order extending the tax foreclosure redemption deadline to June 29.

Executive Order 2020-106 extends the deadline for Michigan residents to pay back taxes and avoid foreclosure during the pandemic.

“As we slowly and safely begin reopening our economy it’s critical homeowners don’t have to fear losing their home during a global health pandemic,” Governor Whitmer said. “This Executive Order gives homeowners some peace of mind as we continue to flatten the COVID-19 curve.”

The executive order is effective immediately.
