Do you understand how property taxes work? Do you get your notice of assessment each year and wonder ‘how’d they get that number’? Do you know you have the right to appeal your assessment? Do you know what “PRE”, “PTE”/”HPTAP”, “NEZ” are?

Whether you’re a legacy homeowner concerned about your taxes or someone considering buying a property, understanding how property taxes work is important! 
Just in time for Property Tax Appeal deadlines, we’ll help you understand the basics of property taxes, and actions you can take to lower your bill! 

What we’ll cover: 

  • What is your Property Tax Assessment? How to read your annual Notice of Assessment Understanding how your property tax bill is calculated (millage rates!)

  • You can appeal your assessment! (Deadlines are coming up! Detroit Assessors Review is Feb 1-15) Is your home over-assessed?? What does the appeal process look like?
