If you've seen your property taxes continue to rise while your property value plummets and you live in Michigan, then write down Senate Joint Resolution H.
(For details: Check this post from Nick at Right Michigan. He has lots of links to news stories describing what happened.)
The Michigan Senate passed the measure to give our state's property owners $253 million in savings to bring their property taxes in line with their home's value.
The difference in the two values was caused when the Michigan Legislature and voters dramatically changed the property tax system in the state.
It's worth calling your state legislator and e-mailing him or her.
