Brief overview of Assessing
The Assessor is responsible for the valuation of the taxable parcels throughout the Township. Both real property (land & buildings) and personal property (tangible property held by businesses) are taxable. Real Property includes land, land improvements and structures. Personal property includes furniture and fixtures, machines and equipment belonging to a business, certain public utilities, structures on leased property, and other similar tangible property.The Assessor maintains property record cards and develops the assessment roll, land value maps and economic condition factor maps.
Protests of the value placed on property may be filed with the March Board of Review. The Board of Review Members include Michael Smith, John Lenz, and Hilbert Mendendorp. The dates of Board of Review are listed on the assessment change notice that is mailed at the end of February and are also published in a local newspaper and on the upper right of this page. Board of Review is conducted during mid-March each year for two days (more if necessary).
