Brilliant. Increased property taxes should really help turn the state around. I'm sure that this will be very popular.
Actually, this could be great. I file for a local taxing district which consists of my parcel only. I vote to add taxes to my property for the purpose of fixing my eye-sore driveway. All in favor? Aye. $1,500 tax to pay for my driveway. Then I get to deduct it as property taxes on my federal return, and maybe get a credit on my MI income tax.
Is that what you had in mind?
