I believe the value placed on my home includes a mistake. What do I do about it?
First thing to do is to ask the Assessing Department to explain your assessment. Double-check the entries on file. Always take the time to talk with the Assessing Department before attending the Board of Review meeting, to educate yourself and possibly correct the problem without an appointment.
How do I get an appointment with the March Board of Review?
In early February, Change of Assessment Notices are mailed to all property owners. There are instructions at the bottom of the form as to when you can call to and schedule an appointment. The March meeting is the only time homeowners are allowed to dispute value.
Now I have an appointment with the Board of Review. What do I do now?
At the time of your appointment, you will be asked to fill out a petition. At your appointment time, you will present your reasons to the Board as to why there is an error in the value of your property. Present appraisals or any other information you have available.
I will be out of town during the March Board of Review, what can I do?
You may send someone to represent you or submit a letter of appeal. The letter must be received before the close of the Board of Review. Include in your letter the parcel number and the reasons for your appeal. You will be notified by mail of their decision and further appeal rights.
Who is the Board of Review?
The Board is made up of residents, which by law; two thirds have to be property owners within Mundy Township.
How often do they meet?
They meet three times a year. The March meeting is solely for valuation disputes, poverty appeals, and classifications. The July and December meetings are for Principle Residence Exemption corrections, clerical errors, and mutual mistakes of fact and poverty appeals not heard in March.
What if I do not agree with the Board of Review's decision?
You have the right to appeal with the Michigan Tax Tribunal. This must be filed with the Tribunal before June 30th of the current year.
