It is that time of year. As you receive your Valuation Notices along with your Tax Statements, please make sure you check them to make sure they are correct. Questions or Concerns: If you have concerns about your valuation notice I encourage the following: 1) Check your value and compare it to last year. Some areas in the county have seen an increase in value, but not all. 2) Check to see whether the classification of the property has changed from last year. The legislature often changes the property classifications we must utilize, and a change in classification could change your tax rate. 3) Check the spending levels of your local governments – county, cities, townships and school district - have they gone up, down or stayed the same? 4) Note that the valuation is based on property sales during the period of October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018, and therefore, may not reflect market conditions that exist after that time period. Again, this is part of the State-prescribed process we must follow.
