Grattan Township, MI

Board of Review

From the Grattan Township Assessors Office

Assessment Change Notices are mailed out the end of February.

In the state of Michigan, homeowners have an overall cap on how much the value of their home can go up each year. The annual assessment increase for each property is constitutionally limited to 5% or the inflation rate, whichever is less. The inflation cap and other rules were put into place in 1995 after Michigan voters approved the constitutional amendment, known as Proposal A, in March 1994.  Proposal A cut property taxes and put a limit or cap on rising property taxes for many homeowners. The proposal also raised the state’s sales tax rate to 6% from 4% at the time. The most important number to read on the notice sent early in the year is what's listed as the taxable value for your home. Your property taxes will be based on that amount unless you appeal it before the local board of review in March.

Any resident who wishes to go before the Board of Review, please call Grattan Township Office 691-8450 to schedule an appointment on one of the Board of Review meeting dates. If these dates have passed, the next session will take place the following year in March. 
March 11, 2024 from 3:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
March 13, 2024 from 9:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m.

The purpose of this Board is to listen to citizen's petitions about the assessment of their property and make decisions regarding that assessment and to insure equality. The Board of Review consists of three appointed taxpayers from the township. They are appointed for 2 years.
