I just received this e-mail from my state representative, Pete Lund. Anytime I can pass on valuable information, I will. This is free and can apply to anyone living in Macomb County. Have you ever wondered about why your taxes are higher than your neighbors?? This is the workshop for you. It will help you understand how to appeal your taxes. In this down economy, everyone can use some help. Bring a friend, family or co-worker. Hope to see you there...
In order to accommodate residents, we will host four events:
- Saturday, Feb. 20 from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the Shelby Township Municipal Office, located at 52700 Van Dyke Road;
- Saturday, Feb. 20 from 1 to 2:45 p.m. at the Shelby Township Municipal Office, located at 52700 Van Dyke Road;
- Monday, Feb. 22 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Washington Township Hall, located at 57900 Van Dyke Road; and
- Monday, Feb. 22 from 7:15 to 8:45 p.m. at the Washington Township Hall, located at 57900 Van Dyke Road.
Property values have fallen so much in recent years that many homeowners who normally wouldn't bother to appeal their assessment actually stand a good chance of lowering their property taxes. These workshops are a great opportunity for homeowners to learn how to effectively appeal their assessment. Although we cannot guarantee your appeal will be successful, we will have experts on hand to assist you in the process.
You may also download a free, easy-to-understand instructional guide that explains how homeowners may appeal their property tax assessment by visiting www.gophouse.com/lund.htm and clicking the "Publications" link on the left.
