2013 Tax Assessment Notice & Chance to Appeal

Hi All,
This is the time of the year to check the mail as you should have received a 
Notice of Assessment, Taxable Valuation and Property Classification   
that gives you the 2013 assessed value of your home or business.  Your 2013  property taxes are calculated using this information.  Read it carefully.  Will you be paying more taxes in 2013?

If you believe the information on this notice is not correct, there is an appeal process.  That process is the BOARD OF REVIEW which meets on certain dates and times in the month of March.  You will have approximately 5 minutes to state your appeal.  Be prepared with facts.  I suggest you have your information in writing with a copy for the the Board of Review members.

William D. Griffin is the department head for the Assessing Department.   Mr. Griffin, or someone in his department, can meet with you if you have questions about your assessed value. The township website is also very useful in understanding the assessing process.
  
However, if you wish to appeal that assessment figure, it is your responsibility to make an appointment and to state your reasons before the Board of Review.  Make your appointment soon, as times do fill up rather quickly.

The Board of Review is three township citizens that were appointed by the township leadership at the 12/10/12 Board of Trustees meeting.
