Search for tax assessment appeals for Detroit properties

The Michigan Tax Tribunal doesn't post decisions of residential appeals online. But The Detroit News has obtained the last three years of decisions in Detroit and they are searchable here.

To search residential properties for state tax appeals, enter a homeowner's name or street in either box. Property searches can be narrowed by clicking the blue link in the "year" column. That shows the previous state equalized value, the current value and the percentage change. Condominiums are listed only by street address, rather than units.

For instance, if you want to see properties on East Jefferson, just put "Jefferson" in the box.

Once you get a list of properties you can get more details by clicking on the blue link in the "Year" column. You'll find the previous State Equalized Value (SEV) and the current SEV, as well as the percent that number changed.

These represent challenges taken to the Michigan Tax Tribunal after first challenging the assessment with the Detroit board of review. Most of the challenges were brought by landlords.

Cases with no change may indicate the challenge was filed improperly.
