The Board of Review & the Assessment Appeal Process

The Board of Review reviews the assessment roll received from the Assessor for complete, accurate, uniform and valid data. The board conducts public hearings in March on property appeals. The Board has authority to hear appeals for classification, tax exempt or non-exempt status, equity (all properties to be assessed at 50 percent of True Cash Value), hardship and valuation. The majority of appeals are for valuation. The Board of Review has no control over millage rates or property taxes.

The Board of Review has two other meetings, one in July and one in December. The July and December Boards of Review have the authority over clerical errors, mutual mistakes of fact, and situations involving hardship exemptions, principal residence exemptions, and qualified agricultural property exemptions. The July and December Board of Review meetings are for two purposes:

  1. To correct assessments for the current and preceding year, and
  2. To correct assessments for properties erroneously uncapped for the current year and three immediately preceding years.

Every year in February, assessment notices are mailed to all property owners in the Township. Appeals of assessed or taxable values placed on property by the Assessor may be made to the Board of Review. If you wish to appear before the Board of Review, an appointment is necessary. Please phone the Assessing office at (734) 449-2880 for an appointment.
