A Michigan taxpayer group has filed for a recount of a bus tax proposal in Macomb County. 

This month voters narrowly renewed a millage to help fund the region's bus system, known as SMART, through the year 2021.

The measure passed by just 39 votes.

The Michigan Taxpayers Alliance said with nearly 155,000 total votes cast the outcome amounted to a statistical tie.

The Macomb County Clerk will determine when the recount will take place.
