Property Tax Law

Defending the Municipal Tax Base

Thousands of property owners challenge their property assessments each year, seeking to reduce their tax liability. Because municipalities and other local taxing units depend on tax revenues for their successful operation, it is important for taxing jurisdictions to successfully defend against those appeals.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in counseling municipal clients on tax-related issues and in representing taxing units at the Michigan Tax Tribunal and Michigan State Tax Commission. We have expertise in defending valuation and exemption appeals, and pride ourselves in our ability to tailor our representation to fit the needs and goals of each client.
