FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ON NON-HOMESTEAD MILLAGE

On Tuesday, November 7, 2017 voters will be asked to vote for a renewal of our Non-Homestead Millage.  The information listed below provides answers to questions most often asked about the Non-Homestead Millage renewal.

What does “non-homestead” mean?

Non-homestead represents industrial, commercial and some agricultural property and “second homes” in the Blissfield School District.  It does not include a family’s main residence.

I thought schools no longer received funding through property taxes, so why are they talking about a millage renewal?

Funding for school districts changed significantly in 1993/94 when Proposal A was passed by the Michigan voters.  Under Proposal A, the State pays the majority of the cost, but to receive full funding, schools must levy 18 mills on non-homestead property in their district.

Is this a new tax?

No.  This millage was approved by the voters in 1994 and more recently in 2012.  The district currently has voter approval to levy 18 mills on non-homestead property through 2018.

Will my residential taxes increase too?

No.  This tax is on non-homestead property only and does not apply to your main place of residence.

What if the Non-Homestead Millage is voted down?

The revenue generated from the 18 mills totals over $893,300 annually, about 8% of the school district’s budget.  If this millage does not pass, the state does not make up the difference and Blissfield Community Schools will be forced to reduce or cut programs and services to offset the loss in revenue.
