Whether you are a first-time homeowner or someone looking for a vacation home, the property tax system in the State of Michigan can make a significant impact on a household budget. Many times, property taxes can radically increase following the transfer in ownership or even decrease due to the property becoming a full-time residence.
Tax amounts can vary greatly from one property to the next so it is best to contact the local unit assessor to find out how your taxes are computed and to see of you qualify for the Principal Residence Exemption. The Principle Residence Exemption allows taxpayers who both own and occupy a homestead to be exempt from up to 18 mills of school tax.
If you have questions regarding property in Sherman Township please contact the township assessor, Corey Cuddie, at (989) 426-0546, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org See the forms section for some of the common forms related to property taxes.
