The "tax calculator" is now up and running on the front page of the district webpage - www.nvps.net. This is a very accurate estimate of what it will cost individual tax payers if both proposals pass.
This is the net tax increase after filing State and Federal tax returns. It takes into account the new Michigan Public Act 38 conditions (passed by the legislature earlier this year).Try it out with your data and inform others that it is on the webpage and is user friendly.
You simply indicate which township you live in (Ada, Plainfield, Grand Rapids), enter your annual household income, the taxable value of your home (1/2 the assessed value), indicate if you are 65 or older (yes/no), and if you itemize your taxes (yes/no). All these items are in blue boxes. Then look to the green boxes below to see you "net tax increase" for the year and how much per month.
