    Never heard of a assessor snooping around or looking in windows. Does not seem like a wise thing to do, at least in Skidway lake.

    Assessors should only work for a certain term in any area, like 3 years. and should be a elected position. Too many wink wink tax bills for elected officials. It happens, and did in Ogemaw a few years ago. Building inspectors, building without permits also.

    Does it happen very often where the taxable value increased but the assessed value decreases? If one goes up it makes sense that both would go up to me. Both of mine went up so no issue with my property but someone I know who owns several properties had this happen to their home, ag land and cottage.

    Assessment went down on my primary residence when selling prices are at an all-time high! Confusing not complaining but if I decide to sell most look at doubling of the SEV to get close to fair market value so hurt you, and doesn't does with the housing shortage after the Great Recession!

    Thanks to the Hedley Amendment it happens all the time. Mostly when a housing bubble bursts or there is another downturn in the economy. Taxable Value has to follow the law and SEV is supposed to follow the market.

    Tax assessment is the most subjective thing in government. I learned this after buying my last piece of property. Talked to 3 different tax assessors, got the same basic definition of the rules but completely different application of the rules. Way too much power given to these people without any guidance, guidelines, oversight or repercussions of their actions. What's worse is their word is gospel and fighting their assessments are mostly a waste of time.

    My three 40's in Dickinson County which are classified "Residential" or "Homestead" have gone up every year since the first year they were purchased without fail. The 40 we enrolled in the Qualified Forest Program has remained the same 2 out of 3 years.

    Appealing to the Board of Review has proved to be a complete waste of time. 99.9% of appeals are denied and appealing beyond the Township level can be expensive, complicated, and fruitless as well. I have appealed twice and been denied twice. The last time I requested copies of all successful appeals for the past 5 years. The only successful appeals were those few that could come up with real estate appraisals which were lower and a few cases where 100% Disabled Veterans were granted exemptions per state law.
