This website will estimate the impact on a taxpayer’s annual tax bill if the bond election is successful, which could potentially be offset by the Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit.  Below is a summary of the revised Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit:

Michigan Homestead Property Tax Credit – Households that pay homestead property taxes greater than 3.2% of their annual income may also be eligible for the 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 the general reduction table and senior credit table below:

Preparing Students for the PROMISE of Tomorrow

                 SCHOOL BOND PROPOSAL
                 Vote Tuesday, May 8, 2018


Why Now?

Baldwin Community Schools has carefully reviewed its near-term and long-term facility needs and has created a plan to address updates that are aligned with our mission. 

Interest rates are currently near historic lows. If the bond proposal is approved by the voters, such low rates would help reduce overall borrowing costs to the taxpayers.

Our Middle-High School building was built in 1955, and the Elementary School in 1999. Even with past updates, at 62 and 20 years old, respectively, many items are at or past their expected useful life. 

Energy-efficient improvements will focus on reducing operating expenses and maintaining a safe and updated learning environment.
