Hi J.R.

you can find the tax rates and estimated annual property tax rates at the State of Michigan Treasury Department website. It can be a little difficult to find the Property Tax Estimator on that site so I have a link to it on my website at The link can be found under the heading "For Buyers".

Let me know if you need any assistance.
