Where do my taxes go?

After the budget process, the completed budgets are given to the Auditor to figure your taxes. Your taxes are then apportioned by the County Treasurer to Levy Authorities such as the school district, city or townships, and county in which your real estate parcel is located. If your property is in a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Area, most of your taxes are probably apportioned to a TIF authority, such as a city. You can see the distribution of your taxes on your tax bill.
