Your Property Tax Dollars Include Rates From Several Entities

When the Personal Property and Real Estate tax bill comes out in November, it includes several rates.  Many of those rates are set at this time of the year.  There have been several tax rate hearings for various organizations in the recent weeks and there are still a few to come, and there are also some rates that are set every few years during an election, including the road maintenance levy.

Livingston County Presiding Commissioner Ed Douglas says the tax you pay before December 31st is a combination of many tax rates.

When you get that tax statement in November, look closely at the rates listed for each of the taxing entities and you will have a better understanding where all that money goes.
