Board of Review

Blake Eitniear * Ken Mattock * Judith Shaune * Jason Stoltz
William Engelgau *Alt

The Board of Review consists of five members of the community appointed by the Mayor and City Council for one year terms. Property owners who are dissatisfied with their property assessments have the right to appear before this Board with their protests.

The Board of Review meets annually in March to review property assessment rolls for completeness, accuracy and uniformity, and to check for errors and injustices. Any property owner who feels there may be an error in assessment should attend one of the sessions.  All protests must be received before adjournment on the final day of the meetings.

At the hearing, you will be expected to present information as to why the assessment is incorrect. Appointments are scheduled at ten minute intervals so any information presented must be concise and factual.

A written notice of the Board’s decision will be mailed to each taxpayer who protested to the Board.  If the taxpayer disagrees with the Board of Review’s decision, the next and highest level of administrative review is the Michigan Tax Tribunal.
