If a school district reaches agreement with the city, township, or county to collect a school district summer levy, and the tax collector currently retains a $2.50 per billable parcel for the State Education Tax collection, will the agreement jeopardize..

Yes. A township, city, or county that is eligible for the $2.50 retaining fee under the State Education Tax Act (specifically, MCL 211.905b) may only retain the $2.50 for those billable parcels for which the only taxes billed are the State Education Tax, county allocated, and/or village taxes. Therefore, for those parcels that are also billed for a school district summer tax levy, the $2.50 per billable parcel retaining fee is no longer allowed.
