Proactive Action for 2016 in Education, Property Taxes, and Veterans Assistance in Detroit
NOW IS THE TIME TO:
Make plans to appeal your property taxes in December by assembling all of your receipts and appearing before the City Assessors in February. This is the primary method on lowering and getting affair rate on your property. Property taxes are determined by the aggregate value of property in your neighborhood. In some cases your taxes may increase even though you purchased the property in a auction of foreclosure. Regardless of that, we strongly encourage you to purchase property in our district.
Give a shout out to Rachel Orange our District 2 Public Relations Educational Liaison for utilizing her resources to personally help gain a partnership with Bagley Elementary School and the Wayne State Athletic Department. The Athletic Department provided school shoes to the entire first through fourth grade classes. For more information contact Ms. Orange at OrangeR@DetroitMI.Gov
