When can I claim special assessments?
Most special assessments for drains, sewers, and roads, etc. may not be included as property taxes levied (billed). You may include special assessments only if they are billed using a millage rate, levied in the entire taxing jurisdiction or are used to provide police, fire or advanced life support services and are levied township-wide. If you have any questions regarding your special assessments and whether they can be included as taxes levied on your homestead property tax credit claim, contact your local city/township/village assessor's office.
Following are some examples of special assessments:
- Solid waste fee
- Delinquent water
- Street lights
- Milk River
- Garbage Pick-up
- DR F012
- DR B030 Blakely
- Emit Rd Maintenance
