Vows To End Over Inflated Bills
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is expected to announce a plan Monday to more fairly assess taxes on property in the city.
Duggan will hold a 1:45 p.m. news conference to address the “unfairness in the way we are assessed in property taxes.”
“We’re going to make a significant step on Monday to get the property tax assessments back in line to where they should be,” Duggan said during a panel discussion Saturday.
Duggan did not provide more specifics.
The announcement follows a Detroit News analysis last year of more than 4,000 appeal decisions from 2010-12 by a state board. The News’ review revealed that Detroit was over-assessing homes by an average of 65 percent, leading to higher tax bills.
