BWC Property Tax Assessment Administration
bwc PROPERTY TAX
Michigan law requires the Assessor to annually value all taxable property at 50% of market value.
Taxable properties include farms, homes, factories, commercial properties, and vacant land. It also
includes personal property for commercial and industrial businesses.
The Assessor also keeps records on ownership, addresses, homestead exemptions, sales, and land
and building details.
The city, schools, county, library, community college, and state use the annual values to generate
revenue. This is in the form of property taxes. It is the fairest way available to them for collecting the
money they need to finance their services.
