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. To establish the taxable and assessed value of personal property, the Assessing Office identifies new business owners by performing street surveys, processes personal property statements, and audits the records and examines the personal property of a sampling of businesses.
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.
To arrange a meeting with the Assessor or anyone in the Assessor's Office, please call during regular office hours.
