Assessing Department

The Assessing Department identifies and values property within the Township of Macomb in accordance with Michigan’s General Property Tax Laws and the State Tax Commission (STC) guidelines.  Macomb Township currently has approximately 32,000 real property parcels and 1,000 personal property parcels.
 
The Assessing Department responsibilities include determining the taxable status, assessed value, true cash value and taxable value for every parcel. The current property owner of record and sales information are maintained through Deeds, Property Transfer Affidavits, Homeowner’s Principal Residence Exemption Affidavits and other related forms. Additionally, land division/combination, legal descriptions and any improvement to the land including all buildings and accessory structures are maintained through the appropriate Township applications and permitting process. .

Notice of Property Inspections
 
The Assessing Department inspects and measures every new construction home and all applicable building permits in the Township. We also verify every sale, review existing properties, inspect and measure all commercial/industrial property, conduct personal property inspections/audits and verify all agricultural farming properties to maintain current and accurate records. 

All assessing staff drive marked Macomb Township vehicles, have an identification badge and wear an assessing department uniform.  They will knock on the front door to notify you they are on the property and possibly leave a door tag if they have any questions.  We will never ask to enter your home.
