A property tax appeal is a formal complaint filed in the Administrative Court known as the Michigan Tax Tribunal.The Tax Tribunal can provide relief to property owners able to provide substansial evidence that their tax assessment is not a valid representation of True Cash Value.
The Michigan Tax Tribunal is separated into 2 divisions- Small Claims and Entire Tribunal. If the amount of State Equalized Value being contested is $100,000 or less, the appeal can be filed in the Small Claims division. For claims over $100,000, the appeal must be filed with the Entire tribunal. All Principal Residences are heard in Small Claims.
The law when your taxable value is lowered states that it can only increase by the rate of inflation or 5% (which ever is lower). This stays in effect until you transfer the property, we at PPTA call this,
