ASSESSING

About the Department

According to the Michigan General Property Tax Laws, P.A. 206 of 1983, the assessing department has a legal responsibility to determine the valuation of property both real and personal provided the property does not have an exemption. Kimball Township has 4,795 real parcels and 353 personal property parcels. 

Record cards for all properties are available on line by clicking on the link below. If you are the property owner, there is no cost to obtain this information. BS&A software will charge a small fee if the parcel is not yours. You may also come into the Township office to obtain a copy of your property record card.

Personal Property Tax Exemption

In December of 2012 eleven bills were signed into law related to personal property tax. Most of the laws do not take effect until 2015 with the exception of MCL 211.9o . If a property owner has industrial or commercial personal property with a true cash value of less than $80,000, they may be exempt from personal property tax. 

To qualify for the exemption, the property owner MUST file an affidavit with the local taxing authority by February 10. The affidavit must be filed annually. Below are links to information you may find helpful in preparing for personal property tax changes in Michigan.
