Oakland County Equalization
Is contracted with the City of Lathrup Village to provide property assessment services. Equalization determins Assessed and Taxable Values on properties.

Headlee Rollback
Refers to the passage of the Headlee Amendment in 1978 to Michigan's Constitution. Headlee requires a local unit of government to reduce its millage when annual growth on existing property is greater than the rate of inflation. As a result, a local unit of government's millage rate gets "rolled back" so that the resulting growth in property tax revenue, community-wide, is no more than the rate of inflation.

Taxable value becomes uncapped from property transfers ("pop-ups"). The greater the number of pop-ups, the greater the impact on rollbacks.
