Due to millage rate rollbacks caused by the “Headlee” amendment, voters will be asked to reauthorize the constitutional millage for the County (5.800 mills), general law townships (1.000 mill) and the intermediate school district (.2000 mill). This proposal has been approved five times since 1994. The last reauthorization was passed in 2012 and expired at the end of 2016.
Only minor rollbacks have occurred since the last authorization. Reauthorization will result in a slight increase in property taxes. In cities, villages and charter townships a home with a taxable value of $75,000 will increase $0.97 per year.
In general law townships a property with a taxable value of $75,000 will increase between $0.97 and $2.45 per year. Information on individual township rates and other details may be found by clicking on the link below.
If the proposal fails, the law requires the county tax allocation board to hold a series of meetings annually, at taxpayer’s expense, to establish the millage division.
