The purpose of the separate tax limitation proposal on the ballot for the November 7, 2017 General Election is to re-establish the maximum operating tax levy for the County, general law townships and intermediate school district. As a result of Proposal A and Headlee, the maximum operating levy has been rolled back over several years.
Re-establishing the maximum operating tax levy will aid the County in addressing its ongoing budget challenges, including a sluggish return of property tax revenue. If levied in full, the additional cost to a homeowner with a taxable value of $50,000 would be $18.97 per year.
