Michigan residents seek lower property tax bills

Many Michigan residents seeing lower tax bills after their homes’ value fell significantly last year are now going before local tax appeal boards to argue that they deserve even more tax relief.
    
The overwhelming majority of Michigan homeowners will get a tax cut this year because their home prices and, in most cases, their taxable values, sank in 2009.
    
But many are asking for even steeper reductions, often by comparing their home to a nearby home that recently sold.  And the Detroit Free Press reports that some of them are getting the reductions they seek.
