Where Birmingham Education Dollars Come From Today

This is an update of an old slide that shows where funding comes from - it does not show how every dollar collected under the non-homestead millage (the 18 mills) is DEDUCTED from what the state says we should receive. That's how the 6 mills state tax gets redistributed around the state and away from our schools - remember, Oakland county is a donor county to the state treasury.

And remember, the local residential millage goes down every year as home values go up, we're the only tax millage which goes down every year.
