Property Assessment Appeal Information
The procedures require the taxpayer to appeal to the Board of Assessors Review first.
Board of Assessors Review can take into account such circumstances as structural defects, fire damage or demolition of property before the beginning of the New Year. To appear before the Board of Review, an appeal must be made during the February Assessors Review, February 1st through the 15th.
If you are not satisfied with the February Assessors Review decision, you must write the Board of Review on or before the second Monday in March.
You will receive an appointment to appear before the Board of Review.
Protest at the Board of Review is necessary to protect your right to further appeals to the Michigan Tax Tribunal for valuation and exemption appeals and/or State Tax Commission for classification appeals. To appeal a decision of the Board of Review, you must write to the Michigan Tax Tribunal by July 31st each year.
