What should I review on my tax bill?
You should look over the entire bill, but pay particular attention to the Homestead Qualified percentage and the taxable value. If you own and occupy your own house, make sure that you are receiving a 100% Homestead percentage. Also, your taxable value increase should not have exceeded the rate of inflation, unless you purchased your property last year or had new construction on your property.

Contact the Assessor’s office at 734-287-6550 for any questions regarding assessments or taxable value. Always be sure to pay the correct amount on the correct parcel with an original tax bill.
