Sample Property Tax Report for a Macomb County, MI property

Proposal A (1994), the main legal document regarding property taxation in the State of Michigan, mandates that tax calculation is based on two main factors: Taxable Value (TV) and State Equalized Value (SEV). More information regarding property taxes in Michigan can be found on the property tax presentation website.

Market Value

The Macomb County Equalization Department establishes the true cash values also known as market values, for all taxable real property in the county. Market value has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.

Market value = $326,800
Assessed Value

The assessed value is determined by the local assessor, based on the property's condition on December 31 of the previous year and is calculated using an assessment ratio set by the State Legislature. Currently, the assessment ratio applicable for real estate property in Macomb County is 50%.

Assessed value = $163,400
Taxable Values And Exemptions

The taxable value cannot be greater than the assessed value and it can only increase each year by the rate of inflation or 5%, whichever is less (excluding new construction). Also a wide variety of property tax exemptions and deferment programs are available in The State of Michigan, which may lower the property's tax bill.

Assessed value $163,400
Exemption value - $4,904
Taxable value = $158,496
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value by the corresponding millage rates.
Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays, including exemptions.
Base tax is an estimate of what an owner NOT benefiting from tax exemptions or deductions would pay.
Nevertheless, actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs.

Winter Rate $158,496 * 19.2605‰ = $3,052.71
