Assessing Department

 ***PROPERTY OWNER NOTIFICATION:

THE STATE TAX COMMISSION RECOMMENDS THAT 20% OF PARCELS ARE PHYSICALLY INSPECTED EACH YEAR TO ENSURE FAIR AND EQUITABLE ASSESSMENT FOR ALL PROPERTY OWNERS. CERTIFIED INSPECTORS WILL HAVE PHOTO IDENTIFICATION, WILL NOT ASK TO ENTER INSIDE YOUR HOUSE, OR ASK FOR CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.  THEY MAY ASK QUESTIONS SPECIFIC TO FEATURES OF THE PROPERTY.

 

Property Assessing

The Assessing Department’s primary responsibility is fairly and equitably assessing the value of property within the township at 50% of its True Cash Value or Market Value, as required by the General Property Tax Act.  To accurately do this, periodic on-site inspections are necessary to ensure the data used in preparation of the assessment roll is accurate.  The assessor is also responsible for maintaining taxable value calculations required under Proposal A of 1994, maintain property ownership records, maintaining land descriptions, processing land divisions or combinations, maintaining and filing required reports with the State Tax Commission, and timely answering questions presented by the public and township officials.
