2022 Personal Property Tax Reimbursement Millage Data Available

Posted on May 27, 2022 by Dene Westbrook

The Local Community Stabilization Authority Act (LCSA Act), 2014 Public Act 86, as amended, requires the Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury) to calculate each municipality’s millage rate eligible for personal property tax (PPT) reimbursement (MCL 123.1345(x)(ii)(B) and MCL 123.1353(5)).

The 2022 Millage Rate Comparison reports are available on Treasury’s PPT reimbursement website www.michigan.gov/pptreimbursement. These reports are intended to be used by municipalities to verify the eligible millage rates to be used in the 2022 PPT reimbursement calculations.

The eligible millage rates to be used in the 2022 PPT reimbursement calculations are calculated based on the eligible millage cap and 2021 millage rates and may be prorated as required by the LCSA Act.  Therefore, the calculated eligible millage rates to be used in the 2022 PPT reimbursement calculations may not reflect the actual 2021 millage rates levied by the municipality.

Municipalities should review the 2022 Millage Rate Comparison reports for accuracy.

  • If the millage rate data is correct, the municipality does not need to take any further action.
  • If there are any errors in the millage rate data, the municipality is required by the LCSA Act to notify Treasury of the error(s) by submitting Form 5613Millage Rate Correction for the 2022 Personal Property Tax Reimbursement Calculations no later than August 1, 2022 (MCL 123.1358(4)).

Below is a list of the reporting forms related to millages that are available on Treasury’s PPT Reimbursement website under Forms for Calculation of PPT Reimbursements.

  • Form 54512022 School District and Intermediate School District (ISD) Debt Millage Rate for the 2022 Personal Property Tax Reimbursement Calculation

    • Optional form to be used by counties, cities, villages, townships, and local authorities that levy an extra-voted millage rate that partially funds the cost of essential services (for example a Fire/Cemetery millage).
