Assessing Department Responsibilities

The Department of Assessing is responsible for property valuation in Pittsfield Township. The General Property Tax Act (Act 206 of 1893) requires us to assess at 50% of true cash value all assessable property as of December 31 of each year. This includes agricultural, commercial, industrial, residential, developmental, and personal (machinery, equipment, furniture, fixtures, and signs used by private businesses) property classes.

Assessments are done by undertaking a review of the physical description of the property and/or improvement(s), real estate sales data, construction costs, rental income information, operating expenses, interest rates, and any and all other factors that may affect value.
