With your township tax bill arriving recently we are all reminded how important an accurate assessment is. In Gerrish Township this may be a good year to review your assessment if you have not done so in the past. During the past year I have represented a property owner that was refunded a substantial amount of tax dollars. We were denied at the BOR and appealed to the state of Michigan Tax Tribunal and were awarded all we asked for.
Many times the assessor just does not have the time to look at every property assessment card for clerical errors. These errors can cost you! I represented one client that was assessed for 10 feet of Higgins Lakefront that was not there’s. The savings was substantial when values were around $7000 per front foot that assessment year.
