Assessor

Lynne Houston, City Assessor


The City Assessor is responsible for listing and keeping the records for all real and personal property in the City of St. Clair.  Each year the Assessor is required by state law to individually place an assessment equal to fifty percent of the true cash value on all property in the jurisdiction. An assessment roll is created from these assessments and is one of the factors in determining a property tax bill.

Personal Property Tax Exemption form

The State’s website for the form is  http://www.michigan.gov/documents/treasury/5076_439273_7.pdf

“Change Of Assessment Notices” are mailed to taxpayers in February of each year, and include the new State Equalized Value (SEV), Taxable Value and the dates of the March Board of Review meetings.  After receiving this notice, a taxpayer may request an informal review with the Assessor prior to a more formal review by the Board of Review.

With the exception of a few records (such as personal property statements and real property confidential forms) all records in the Assessor’s office are available for review by the public.
