Operating Millage Restoration Proposal

On August 2, 2022, voters in Bloomfield Hills Schools will be asked to consider a proposal to restore the Non-homestead Operating Millage. 

• 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.
