Ypsilanti Township has an ongoing review program of residential, commercial, and industrial properties to update record card data for accuracy and uniform property valuations in our community. The field staff will visit each property to verify measurements, take photos, and all attributes essential to the valuation process. This review is necessary to meet State Tax Commission requirements for the Property Record System. All Assessment Department employees will be properly identifiable while in the field.
The Assessment Department is responsible for the valuation of all residential, commercial, industrial, and personal property in the Ypsilanti Township and answers inquiries from current residents, prospective homebuyers, and all members of the property purchasing process.
Inquiries with the Assessor’s office include:
- Assessed and Taxable Values
- Legal descriptions and lot sizes
- Land divisions and combinations
- Ownership of property
- Personal property
- Property tax estimates
- Qualifications for filing of State exemptions
- Disabled Veterans Exemptions
It is the priority of the Assessing Department to have a certified assessing staff member respond to all taxpayer requests within one business day (24 hours). At least one certified assessing staff member is available for public inquires during all posted Township business hours. An in person or phone meeting can be scheduled by calling or emailing our office. Basic assessing record card data is available to access electronically at the top of this page. For requests for the inspection of more detailed records maintained by our office, please email or call to schedule a meeting with one of our certified staff members.
