Assessment appeal starts now with your local governing unit, can't take assessment to county without denial by local officials
Examples of adjustments that can be made by the assessor office can be related to simple issues like the parcel size data or structure square footage is inaccurate; or house improvements are documented in error; or maybe you experienced a catastrophe like a fire or flood damage.
Should you not receive an administrative adjustment at the county assessor office, then you go before the local Board of Review for your city or township.
Ideally, you should call your city or township clerk to reserve a spot on the Board of Review agenda but you can also just show up. Or, you may submit a written appeal of your property assessment.
