What is a Mill? How much will the Proposed Library Millage Cost me?

The property tax rate in Michigan is referred to as a millage, and it's figured in mills. One mill is equal to 1/1,000 of a dollar. Or, more simply, for every $1,000 in taxable value, a property owner will pay $1 in property tax. Property taxes are computed by multiplying the taxable value of the property by the number of mills levied.

The Proposed Library Millage is 1.05 mills, if the taxable value of your home is $60,000, then the cost would be $63 per year, $5.25 per month, $1.21 per week and $.17 per day.
(1.05/1000) .00105 (millage rate) X 60,000 (taxable value of home) = $63 per year
