tax appealsMunicipalities are sending out notices of real property tax assessments for 2015.

For residential properties, there are very tight time frames for appeals to your local Board of Review (usually set forth in the notice of assessment). Complying with the deadlines  is a prerequisite for appeals to the Michigan Tax Tribunal (if the result from the local Board of Review is unsatisfactory).

For commercial properties, there is no need to appeal to your local Board of Review before filing a petition with the Michigan Tax Tribunal (though under some circumstances, it may be helpful). The absolute deadline to file a Petition with the Michigan Tax Tribunal to contest your 2015 real property tax assessment is May 31, 2015.

If you feel that the assessed value of your property is materially higher than the value of your property, contact Dawda Mann for assistance. We have a team ready to assist you.
