The type of appeals the Board has authority to hear are for classification, tax exempt or non-exempt status, equity, hardship and valuation. The majority of appeals are for valuation. The Board of Review has no control over millage rates or property taxes. 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. The deadline to appeal for Residential is July 31. Only assessments reviewed by the Board of Review can be appealed to the Michigan Tax Tribunal and State Tax Commission.
Appeal Documentation
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 Board of Review will list the decision made and given to the Assessor for adjustment on a completed “Petition to the Board of Review”.
