Michigan’s Local Community Stabilization Authority (LCSA) distributed over $170 million to more than 2100 local units of government and authorities today as reimbursement for eligible manufacturing personal property loss under the state’s new Personal Property Tax reimbursement system.
Today’s reimbursement payments represent 100% of eligible losses for essential services and other qualified loss. Those communities/authorities with calendar year-end fiscal years will see their 100% reimbursement payments distributed in February. School districts and ISDs also will see $87 million distributed today for their eligible losses. Payment amounts for October/February by unit/authority can be viewed on Treasury’s website here...

Local units are encouraged to compare today’s (or February’s calculated payment) with their October/February payments from 2018 for any unexpected discrepancies and to contact Treasury if they believe a payment amount is in error.
Treasury will calculate any error corrections in the first quarter of 2020 and issue those corrected disbursements along with all remaining revenue in the LCSA on a pro-rated basis in May of 2020, similar to what has occurred in recent years.
For communities that have signed up for ACH deposits, be aware that the LCSA has informed us that a technical issue arose with today’s payments and some communities will be receiving their PPT reimbursement payment via check the week of October 21st, even though they had signed up for electronic deposit.
Communities eligible for Fire Protection Grant funding should expect to see their reimbursement dollars also distributed by the LCSA at the end of November.
