Assessing 

Responsibilities


The Office of the Assessor is responsible for the assessing of real and personal property in the township. Property Transfer Affidavits and Principal Residence Exemption Affidavits are filed and maintained by this office.  Land splits and the issuance of tax identification numbers also fall under the responsibility of this office.

The assessing department's function is to maintain a record of each property in the township. The types of data maintained include ownership changes, exemptions, assessments, building sketches, legal descriptions, square footage, year built. The assessors visit properties in order to verify property records as well as physically verify new construction or additions to properties.  Sales studies are conducted by our staff every year in order to set assessed values for each property.  The sales study for the current tax year is made available to the public on our website or in person.  This office also maintains section and plat maps.

Appeals of assessments are made to the Board of Review.
 
Appeals for denial of PRE and Board of Review Decisions are made to the Michigan Tax Tribunal via efile or mail.  A form must be efiled or mailed to the MTT.  For further details, please refer to their website.
