Grand Rapids Area Property Taxes

Grand Rapids Area Property Taxes

Millage Rates (Property Tax Rates)

Michigan has 2 property tax rates for all homes, one for owner occupant homes, and one for non-owner occupant homes (aka investment property, vacation homes, rental homes) these to rates are called homestead and non-homestead.  Property tax rates are voted on by citizen in public elections.

There are 3 government entities that all influence the specific property taxes for each home they are county, township, school district. Below is a chart of the Grand Rapids Area millage rates for property taxes. here is how to read the chart.

So when figuring out property tax rates you need to know which county the property is located in, the township or city in which the home is located and the school district which covers the area where the home is located.

Example: (Kent County, Ada Township, Forest Hills School) or (Kent County, Cascade Township, Forest Hills Schools)

Once you have located the millage rate for the property and know whether or not it will be homestead or non-homestead you can calculate the actual yearly property taxes. All you need is the specific taxable rate assign be the assessors office to the property to calculate the yearly property taxes.

Click here to a links pages for all Grand Rapids Area Tax Assessors pages.

This is how to calculate your property taxes based on millage rates when you have located your taxable value (Which is somewhere near half the market value of your home):

Example:

$100,000 Home,  $50,000 Taxable value (Kent County, Ada township, Forest Hills Schools located below) millage = 28.7644

Take the taxable value and multiple it by (the millage rate with the decimal places to the left Example: 28.7644 is now .0287644 for calculation purposes)

50,000 X .0287644 = $1438.22
