Personal Property Tax Appeals

Linda G. Anderson encourages Commercial and Industrial personal property owners to consider appealing their personal property tax assessments. Some Residential property owners may also benefit from an appeal of their real property tax assessments.

Many commercial and industrial personal property assessments exceed levels reflected by current market sales prices.

Michigan personal property assessments are based on State Tax Commission valuation guidelines which often do not reflect the usual selling price of used personal property. Without taxpayer action, many property assessments tend to be excessive.

If you feel your property has been over-assessed based on an inaccurate property value, Linda G. Anderson can assist you to exercise your right to file a property tax appeal.

Commonly, the first step in the tax appeal process is to file an appeal before the local Board of Review. Generally this Board of Review Meeting is held in March of each year. Some cities require an administrative appeal in February before a party can appeal to the March Board of Review. No Board of Review protest is required for Commercial, Industrial or Developmental personal property tax appeals.

If you deem the assessment to be excessive, we can file a petition on your behalf with the Michigan Tax Tribunal after receipt of the Assessment Notice but before the deadline of May 31st.

There are many timelines and deadlines to be met, and the appeal process can be very tedious, confusing and time consuming.

Linda G. Anderson can assist you throughout the Appeal process for your Personal Property Tax Assessment.
