Description

An investigation into the city's property tax collection found that Detroit has one of the lowest collection rates of big cities nationwide, and fails to collect $60 million every year due to inaccurate and outdated tax rolls. The story also reported that Detroit is the only city in Michigan that collects its own property taxes, which was changed shortly after the story ran.
