Millage: August 2, 2022
On August 2, 2022, voters in Bloomfield Hills Schools will be asked to consider a proposal to restore the Non-homestead Operating Millage. This proposal would restore and increase the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be levied by the Bloomfield Hills Schools for general operating purposes by 2.00 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempt by law. This authority, if approved and combined with the School District’s other unexpired authorization, would allow the School District to continue to levy the statutory limit of 18.00 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempt by law, in the event of future Headlee rollbacks.
- Required for Bloomfield Hills Schools to receive full revenue per pupil.
- The majority of families in Bloomfield Hills Schools qualify for the Principal Residence Exemption and will not be affected by the restoration of 2 mills.
- The tax rate for Non Principal Residence Exemption properties (like business and rental property owners) will not increase. For a business with a taxable value of property established at $200,000, the tax cost would be $3,600 ($200,000 x 18 mills ÷ 1,000), the same tax rate applied today.
- No levy increase, current tax rate (18 mills) since 2000.
