The Assessing Department has the responsibility of appraising and determining the true cash value of all taxable properties located within the township. This department also has the

responsibility to prepare the assessment rolls for Davison Township. The State of Michigan Constitution and Statute requires that, notwithstanding, any other provision of law, the assessed values placed upon the assessment roll shall be at 50% of true cash value. The assessed values, when equalized, become the State Equalized Values (SEV) and taxes were based on those values. This procedure changed with the passage of Proposal A in March of 1994. Proposal A placed additional and profound limits on the values used to compute property taxes. Starting in 1995 and thereafter, property taxes are calculated based on the Taxable Value.

The Assessing Department serves as a source of information for the public by maintaining for general inspection, subdivision plat maps, as well as property record cards for each parcel of land located in Davison Township. In 2010 during construction of the website there were over 7400 real parcels and over 600 personal property accounts. The appraisers within this department are constantly reviewing and updating records to reflect changes that occur to the individual properties.

Responsible for real and personal property assessment functions in Davison Township, to ensure that all property is fairly and equitably assessed as required by Michigan property tax laws, and that accurate assessment records are maintained.
