Unaffordable Property Taxes


For property tax appeals, our fees are based on our success in lowering your property tax bill. In other words: You only pay for our property tax services if we are successful!


​Many, many people are paying too much in property taxes. In Michigan, the amount one pays in property taxes is dependent on the “fair market value” of the home. A higher home value will cause that home's property taxes to also be high. Every municipality has a tax assessor whose job is to determine this value for each piece of real estate.


In Michigan, real estate values have fallen considerably in the last 6-7 years. This should translate to lower property taxes, but we find that the tax assessor often fails to lower the values accordingly.


If our assessment is correct, then your property tax bill is possibly much higher than it should be!

Fortunately, the tax assessor does not have the final word. 
Michigan law allows for the tax assessor’s findings to be appealed once yearly, at the beginning of the year.


Our office can assist you with this process!


You receive a tax assessment during the first week of February every year. You will recognize it because it states “THIS IS NOT A BILL” near the top of the page.


As soon as you receive this notice, you must act immediately!


The window to appeal closes within days!


Call our office, and we will provide a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your particular situation.
