Board of Review

The Pere Marquette Township Board of Review is a citizen committee created through Michigan's General Property Tax Act (206 of 1893).  It's part of the system of checks and balances of the Assessor's office for the purpose of ascertaining that property has been uniformly assessed (MCL 211.28 -211.33).  Members are selected by the Township Supervisor and appointed by the Township Board.  Members serve 2-year terms and all members' terms run concurrently.

  • Meet State Standards in Record-keeping Compliance
Meetings:  Regular meetings of the Board of Review are held in March, July, and December at the Pere Marquette Township Hall.  In March, the Board of Review can consider taxpayer petitions regarding the valuation of their property.  An appeal at the March Board of Review also preserves the petitioner's right to appeal further.  July and December Boards of Review cannot consider questions of property valuation.  July and December meetings are limited to correction of clerical errors, various exemption applications, and other items specifically allowed by State Law.  Please contact the Assessor if you have any questions about which Board of Review session to attend for your specific issue.
