I live on a decreased or limited income, can I ask the Board of Review to lower my taxes?

The State of Michigan does not offer a senior citizen or disability discount on Property Taxes.  If your income falls at or below Federal Poverty Guidelines, you may apply for a Poverty Exemption.  The Poverty Exemption is an application process which requires proof of income and expenses; completed applications will be presented at the July and December Boards of Review.  The applicant does not need to be present at the Board of Review.  If you believe you may qualify for a Poverty Exemption, please call the Assessor’s office at 810-229-0558 to request additional information.
