How are tax rates determined?
The tax rates for the City, Grand Rapids Community College, Kent Intermediate School District, State of Michigan and the respective school district that the property resides in are approved by the elected board members of each unit. The State Treasurer authorizes the State Education Tax. Some school districts levy 100% of their tax on the summer bill, while others split their levy between the summer and winter bill. The Kent County Board of Commissioners approves the county tax rate.
