The summer tax bills that were mailed last week to owners of property within the City of Hastings have the incorrect millage rate for City Operating Millage and City Cemetery Millage.
Jerry Czarnecki, City Clerk-Treasurer-Director of Finance, said the city is asking residents not to pay their taxes from these bills.
The correct millage rate is 15.9869 for City Operating Millage and 0.7500 for the City Cemetery Millage. The millage rates for other taxes are correct on the bill. The corrected millage rate will slightly reduce the amount that property owners will pay in their taxes by approximately $0.28 per $1000 of taxable value.
The City will send out corrected tax bills as soon as possible. The taxes will still be due by August 31, 2018.
