I think my taxes are too high. Are they?

Two separate factors make up your tax bill: the assessment and the rate. The Assessor’s Office is responsible for assessing every property in the township at as close to one third of market value as possible. This will assure that each taxpayer will bear their fair share of the tax burden. The tax rate, on the other hand, is determined by the voters, the municipalities, school boards and other taxing bodies in the area. If you are concerned with the rate you are paying, please contact your taxing bodies. If you feel your assessment is unfair please call our office and request information on how we determined the value for your property.
