(CBS DETROIT) – Detroit activists propose a refund for homeowners who were over-taxed after the 2008 housing crash.

The Coalition for Property Tax Justice says the refund should be supported from fines against neglectful landlords. The group also suggests the city partner with local law schools to help residents file successful lawsuits against those landlords.
