PROPERTY ADMINISTRATION FEE 
As authorized by Michigan Public Act 503 of 1982, as amended, and City of Holland Ordinance Code 33.2, a one percent (1%) fee is applied to all property taxes and special assessments. The purpose is to offset administrative costs incurred by the City of Holland to properly assess property values, to review and/or litigate assessment appeals, to collect and distribute property taxes, and to pursue delinquent personal property taxes. 

RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES – DEFERRING THE TAX DUE DATE 
Under the authority of state statute, certain homestead property taxpayers (primarily senior citizens, disabled and handicapped persons) who meet the statutory provisions may apply for deferral of the summer property tax payment. Application for deferral should be filed with the Office of the City Treasurer prior to August 15, 2019, for deferral until February 14, 2020. City Treasurer’s Office staff members will assist in filing this application. 

RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES – TAX EXEMPTIONS 
PRINCIPAL RESIDENCE – Michigan Public Act 74 of 1995 provides each homeowner with a local school district operating tax exemption of 18 mills for property legally declared as their principal residence. 

HOME REPAIRS – Michigan Public Act 25 of 1978 allows homeowners to repair and maintain their property without increasing the assessed value until the home is sold, thereby avoiding a proportionate increase in the property taxes. 

POVERTY – Michigan Statute Section MCL 211.7u provides the availability of homestead property tax exemption for those meeting provisions of the poverty policy, as adopted by the Holland City Council. 

VETERAN – Michigan Public Act 161 of 2013 provides an exemption for those meeting certain conditions specified in the law. For further details on any of these exemptions, please contact the City's Property Assessing Office at (616) 355-1350.
