Local large city property taxes are often far over assessed.

February 13, 2014

According the Detroit News, there is a large inequity from property to property. This is true in most large cities in MI. Further, the local board of review personnel often doesn’t know how to or refuses to assist you, the taxpayer they work for, in the process. The article leaves out important details of interpretation. Don’t assume the house you buy will change property taxes for the better – DO assume they will change with ownership change. We can chat further.

Detroit— Detroit is over-assessing homes by an average of 65 percent, leading to higher tax bills, according to a Detroit News analysis of more than 4,000 appeal decisions over the past three years by a state board.
