About

The purpose of the Board of Appeal and Equalization

is to provide a fair and objective forum for property owners to appeal their valuation or classification. The local board often serves as the first formal step in the appeals process for taxpayers. One of the most important duties placed by law upon the governing body of a township, city, or county is to serve as the Board of Appeal and Equalization. Effective actions taken by the board may potentially make a direct contribution to attaining assessment equality.

The goal of the Board of Appeal and Equalization

should be to attempt to address property owners’ issues efficiently, fairly and objectively. Always keep in mind that any changes made by the board must be substantiated by facts. Any value reductions must be justified because they have the effect of shifting the tax burden to other property in the jurisdiction. Further, any changes made by the board must meet statutory guidelines.
