About the Assessing Department
The Assessor's office maintains records for each parcel of land in the Township. Information is provided to residents and the business community regarding property description, value and homestead exemption status. The Assessor's office also handles the Township Board of Review in March of each year. The Board of Review hear appeals from property owners who believe their assessment is incorrect. The March Board of Review dates are printed on the Assessment Change Notice that is mailed to each property owner in late February of each year.
IMPORTANT NOTICE - P.A. 415 of 1994 states that the new owner of a property must file a Property Transfer Affidavit within 45 days of the transfer. If the Property Transfer Affidavit is not timely filed a penalty of $5/day (maximum of $200) applies. Please be advised that Redford Township is now collecting this penalty. This penalty will be assessed on the winter tax bill.
We have recently turned on a website (BSA Software Internet Services) which will enable Redford Township citizens to view their information for Assessing, Tax, Animal Licensing and Special Assessments. Click here to visit the new website
