Board of Review
The Board of Review reviews the assessment roll received from the Assessor to check to see it is complete, accurate, uniform and valid. They conduct public hearings in March to hear appeals of property values from property owners. The March Board of Review has an organizational meeting every year on the Tuesday following the first Monday in March. The objective of the organizational meeting is to review the current year assessment roll, make changes to the roll as deemed appropriate, and review hearing schedules and any changes in procedures and law for the upcoming Board of Review. The board also meets once in July (Wednesday following the third Monday in July) each year, and once in December. (the Wednesday following the second Monday) There are no valuation appeals heard at July or December Board meetings.
The March Board of Review has the authority to review the following types of appeals: current year assessed value, current year poverty exemptions under MCL 211.7u; current year Assessor denial of the continuation of a Qualified Agricultural Property Exemption, and the current year assessment classification. The Board shall review the roll according to facts existing on tax day, proceeding December 31.
Every person who makes a request, protest or applications to the board of review for the correction of the assessed value or the tentative taxable value of the person’s property shall be notified in writing of the board of reviews action, not later than the first Monday in June
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) 475-2401
Residents who appeal their value should provide documentation to support why their assessment is too high. Provide documentation of comparable houses in your neighborhood that sold at lower prices than your appraised value, or provide a recent appraisal reflecting the fair market value of your home. The Assessing office has sales information where you can look at sales in your neighborhood and compare them to your home. It is also a good idea to review your field inspection sheet in the Assessing office for accuracy. If there is an error, it should be brought to the attention of the Assessing office. A “Petition to the Board of Review” must be completed before appearing before the Board. This petition may be obtained from the Assessing office.
