Shelby Township offices will be closed Nov. 12 in observance of Veterans Day
Shelby Township offices will be closed Nov. 12 in observance of Veterans Day. Emergency personnel will be available. To reach the township for non-emergencies, please call the Shelby Township Police Department at 586-731-2121. For emergencies dial 911. Offices will reopen at 8:30 a.m. Nov. 13.
The Assessing Department staff is comprised of the Township Assessor, a commercial / industrial appraiser, a personal property appraiser, residential appraisers and support staff. The Township Assessor (Matthew Schmidt) and the members of the Appraisal staff are certified in Assessment Administration by the Michigan State Tax Commission (STC).
The Assessing Department uses the BS&A Software "Equalizer .Net Assessing System". We feel that this provides for more accuracy and offers greater availability of information for taxpayers, appraisers and realtors. We currently use a new drawing tool called "Apex", which allows us to draw sketches of all types of buildings on the computer. We have also incorporated digital pictures into the computer appraisal system for the majority of the improved properties in the Township.
The existing technology allows for the search of the assessing database free of charge, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Information can be accessed by property owner name, street address or by parcel number. Comparable sales information can also be accessed by using a number of different search criteria. The Assessing website contains current tax, building department and special assessment information.
