Portage Library to host property tax seminar, visit by Gov. Snyder reps July 11

HOUGHTON -- Portage Lake District Library will host two events on Wednesday, July 11: a free property tax seminar and a question-answer session with representatives from Gov. Rick Snyder's office.

A free seminar about new property tax laws will be offered from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the library.

Robert C. Anderson and Stewart R. Hakola of the Elder Law Firm of Anderson Associates, P.C., in Marquette will present three new changes to property tax laws in Michigan. They will discuss 1) the state’s new Estate Recovery program, which targets the homes of nursing home patients who have passed away, 2) the state’s new policy targeting jointly-owned camps, cottages, and recreational land, and 3) the Michigan Supreme Court’s newly established opportunity to pass real estate on to your loved ones without uncapping the property taxes.

This seminar is free and open to all. For more information please call the library at 482-4570 or visit

From 3:15 p.m. to 5 p.m. representatives from Governor Rick Snyder’s office will answer questions and take comments from the public at the library. Everyone is welcome.
