The fundamental principle of property taxation is to see that all
property is assessed equitably according to market value. Equalization;
therefore, does appraisal and sales studies to develop ratios for each
class of property in each township and city. These ratios are converted
into factors which put township at the constitutional uniform assessment
not to exceed 50 percent. Besides these studies, the department furnishes
assistance to the tax units and assessing officers. The department
maintains property descriptions, assessments, homesteads, property maps,
911 house numbering, data processing, and ownership changes for all 14
townships, 2 cities and 2 villages. The equalization department is
currently working on digital maps and aerials.
