School districts are the largest taxing entities in the county, and residents pay taxes to one of
11 school districts. Taxpayers throughout the county also pay taxes to the state
(TBA percent per $100 assessed valuation), nursing home (TBA), library
(TBA), health unit (TBA), ambulance district (TBA), and the developmentally disabled
(TBA). Property owners also pay township taxes and taxes to road and bridge (amounts vary by township). According to where the property is located, taxpayers pay additional taxes to cities or other entities. There is not a county property tax. New buildings or additions to almost every school in recent years demonstrate the value residents give to education.
