MILLAGE RATES

Section Menu

The total tax rate consists of millage rates for our public schools, Bloomfield Township and Oakland County. School millage rates vary among school districts. There are four school districts within Bloomfield Township: Avondale, Bloomfield Hills, Birmingham, and Pontiac. Each school district has a homestead rate for the residence owned and occupied by the taxpayer and a non-homestead rate for property not occupied as a principal residence by the taxpayer.

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. The millage rate times the taxable value (per thousand) is your tax obligation. Click here to see an example.

Supplemental

This levy is used in school districts whose per pupil funding would not equal last year if that district only received its share of the State Education Tax and its operating levy for funding. This levy has sometimes been referred to as "hold harmless millage". The first 18 mills of this levy can only be applied to Principal Residence properties.

Sinking Fund

A Sinking Fund is a millage approved by the community and levied to support the maintenance, repair and construction of school buildings.

School Operating

As a result of Proposal A, this millage now applies only to Non-Principal Residence properties. The collection of this tax is remitted directly to the school district. This levy is subject to voter approval as current authorized millage expires.

State Education

This is the tax levy which was authorized by the passage of Proposal A. These funds go to the State of Michigan and are distributed to the school districts. State law required that beginning July of 2003, the entire State Education Tax (SET) will be collected in the summer levy.

Intermediate Schools

This is the levy of the Intermediate School District. Proposal A did not affect this levy and it appears only on the summer tax bill.

Community College

This levy goes to Oakland Community College and appears only on the summer tax bill.

Oakland County

Public Act 357 of 2004 amends the General Property Tax Act so that 100% of the county's fixed allocation millage shall be collected in July for each year beginning 2007.
