FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I get my assessment changed?
Residents may file a tax appeal through the local township office or through the county building. Multipliers must be appealed through the State. Anyone having an appraisal may submit it to the township for a change in their assessment. A recent sale can be used as long as it is an arm's length transaction. The office will be happy to show you how to use comparable properties as a tax appeal. The County has an limited window to file and appeal. The township can make changes up to December 31st of each year.

I want to add a structure to my property, how will that affect my taxes?
Residents may call and discuss how the new structure will affect their property assessment. The assessors office does not assess concrete or blacktop driveways, fences or above ground pools. All other structures could affect your assessed value. Residents can apply for a home improvement exemption for 4 years on any new structures up to a value of $45,000.
