Taxes

According to Zillow, property taxes on 4415 Sunburst Ave, Waterford, MI 48329 went up almost by 50%. I'm wondering if this is correct and if so, why?

According to the Oakland County public records, the taxes on that property acturally went down from 2011 to 2012. The latest taxes on the record are for the summer of 2012 at $800.17, the summer of 2011 was $822.92. Winter taxes for 2011 were $1,185.15. The winter taxes for 2012 have not been posted on the public records yet.

The taxable valu for 2011 was $39,200 and in 2012 wend down to $38,150. The records indicate the property is still 100% homesteaded. The house is currently listed at $62,900.

If you send me your e-mail address, I will send you a copy of the public record.

Based on that percentage and my review of the public record, it is likely this property has gone from Homestead to Non-Homestead.  If the home becomes a primary residence in the future, the new owners can file the Homestead affidavit to claim it as a Homestead property, thus property tax savings.
