BY MARGARITA BAUZAFREE PRESS BUSINESS WRITERA proposed change in Michigan's pop-up tax would give home sellers like Anthony Rimanelli a much-needed boost in a sagging real estate market.House Bill 4440-4441, which awaits state Senate consideration after being passed by the House 77-31 on March 14, would allow the buyer of a home to inherit the tax amount the seller currently pays, eliminating what is known as Michigan's pop-up tax.Rimanelli pays $3,500 in taxes for his Grosse Pointe Woods bungalow. His tax bill increased an average of 4.7% annually from when he bought his house in 1997 for $127,000. His taxes that year were $2,370. The rate of increase is capped by the state's Proposal A, which limits annual increases in a home's taxable value to the rate of inflation or 5%, whichever i...
