Enter your address (street number and name) in the required fields to find out the effect to your home with this 2023 estimate if the new combined replacement millage is passed.
This is a dedicated millage to be used only for public safety and not a Special Assessment District. As a millage this will keep Bloomfield Township under the 10 mil cap and the change to voters is only based on the taxable value of your home.
Bloomfield Township currently has four public safety millages. By combining millages 3 and 4, it reduces the number of special elections in the future estimated to save more than $100,000.00 per special election.
Enter your street name and street number into the calculator above to find your current taxable value and the estimated impact in 2023 when the millage is levied.
