Board of Review

Each year in March, the Township Board of Review listens to property owners who come to the township complex in order to get more information on their property taxes for the previous year. Many of the people who come did not know about the Homestead property tax change back in 1995 and wish to have their property listed as Homestead property. This drastically reduces their property taxes. People who are veterans in the armed services come to get their properties exempt from property taxes. Others come to get more information as to the assessment of their property.

The Township Board of Review is made up of three township electors and an alternate. In March they spend two days of twelve total hours meeting with property owners who come in to inquire about their property assessment. The board meets three other times during the year to take care of other property situations.
