School Improvement Bond Informational Letters

In September, we mailed out an informational letter all residents in Nadeau and Gourley townships giving an overview of the projects we would pursue with this bond.  A second letter will be sent in early October, and, ultimately, both can be found in their entirety below.

Proposed Millage Tax Calculator

Determining the “Taxable Value” of Your Property

The easiest way to determine the taxable value of your property would be to call your local assessor.  If your property is located in Nadeau Township, please call John Anderson at 906-497-5466.  Those with property in Gourley should contact Margaret Shroud at 906-863-9720.  You can also find your taxable value on the 2020 Assessment notice that was mailed to all property holders back in February of this year.

Determining Your Estimated Costs of the Proposed School Improvement Bond Millage Levy

Once you know the taxable value of your property, you can click upon the link below and use the Carney-Nadeau Public School Millage Tax Calculator to see what your estimated daily, monthly, and annual costs of our School Improvement Bond Proposal would be.   By entering in your household income, you allow the calculator to determine whether or not you qualify for a Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit, and if eligible, that discount would be factored in to the results it gives you.   All information you submit is completely anonymous and entirely confidential.  For more information on the Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit, please click upon the link for it on our main page.

Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit Eligibility Information

Depending on your age and/or income, any increase in taxes you would sustain if the CNPS School Improvement Bond proposal passes could potentially be offset by the Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit.  Below is a summary of what the program entails.

Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit

Households that pay homestead property taxes greater than 3.2% of their annual income may be eligible for Michigan’s Homestead Property Tax Credit.  Eligible households may deduct up to 60% (up to 100% for senior citizens, please see the senior credit table below) of the millage increase cost up to a $1,500 Homestead Tax Credit limit.  The eligibility for the credit begins to decrease after household income exceeds $51,001 and ends completely after the household income exceeds $60,001.  Please see below the general reduction table and senior credit table below:
