Do You Know How Your Valuable Tax Dollars Are Spent?

By law, each property owner, per their individual Taxable Value and specified millage rates, pays yearly property taxes.

All funds, collected by Bloomfield Township, are re-distributed to the various taxing authorities on a bi-weekly basis.

Each funding authority uses these funds to cover their fiscal year's activities.

For example, if a Homestead Property Owner, living in the Bloomfield Hills School District, has a TAXABLE Value of 100,000, the funds, based on the 2020 Millage Rate of 39.3233, would be distributed as follows:

Half of the school taxes are billed on the July statement, with the exception of the Pontiac School District, which bills 100% of its school taxes on the July statement.
