The Assessor is responsible for establishing assessments of taxable property for the equitable distribution of the property tax burden in accordance with Michigan’s General Property Tax Act and other applicable statutes. The Assessor’s responsibilities include creating the annual assessment roll, maintaining ownership records and property descriptions for taxing purposes, processing Personal Property Statements and personal property exemption requests, and inspecting existing property and new construction for property tax purposes. Taxable values established by the Assessor annually are used by the Township Treasurer to produce property tax bills for property within the Township.

Townships are assessing units
There are many local governmental units with the authority to levy taxes: townships, villages, cities, school districts, intermediate school districts, community colleges, district libraries, and special taxing authorities, such as downtown development authorities.

However, there are only two governmental units with the authority to assess property: townships and cities. Villages are required to have assessment rolls, but villages do not assess property because all property in a village is within a township, so the village assessments must be identical to those set by the township assessor.

All taxable property within a township must be annually assessed by the township supervisor or other assessor(MCL 211.10) who is certified as qualified by the State Assessors Board (MCL 211.10d).
