APPEALING YOUR PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENT
If, for any reason, a Brooks Township taxpayer disagrees with the assessed value, taxable value, or assessment classification of property, he/she may appeal to the township Board of Review. The Board of Review members are township voters that are appointed by the township board. For 2016, the Board of Review will hear appeals on March 7 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on March 9 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All meetings of the Board of Review are open to the public and are held at the Brooks Township Hall, located at 490 Quarterline Road, Newaygo, Michigan. Appeals may be submitted by mail or in person to the township.
The Board of Review will also meet in July and in December (dates to be determined) to correct qualified errors in the roll, including adjustments for property incorrectly listed as having had a transfer of ownership or certain other errors regarding the taxable status of the property. These meeting dates are also used for disputes over claims for the homeowner’s principal residence, poverty, and initial qualified agricultural property exemptions.
