Buying a house? Your new property tax rate has nothing to do with the current occupant's rate. Under Proposal A, new homeowners have their property taxes assessed at a new rate that is sometimes more than that of the current occupant. The Michigan Department of Treasury's Millage rate Database and Property Tax Estimator allows you to estimate prospective property taxes.
