Board of Equalization
About the Board
The purpose of the County Board of Appeal and Equalization is to ensure equalization among individual assessments, between classes and from jurisdiction to jurisdiction by providing a fair and objective forum for property owners to appeal their valuation or classification.
The local board's major duty is to determine whether or not all taxable property in the township or city has been properly valued and classified by the assessor for taxation purposes. The board must hear all complaints and objections that are made in person, by letter, or through a representative of the owner. Members of the board must review the assessments in detail and take action as they deem fair and appropriate.
