Michigan Tax Tribunal

Michigan Tax Tribunal
1033 S. Washington Avenue
P.O. Box 30232
Lansing, MI 48909
(517) 334-6521

The Michigan Tax Tribunal has exclusive jurisdiction over all ad valorem property tax matters, and concurrent jurisdiction on other state taxes administered by the Michigan Department of Treasury. The Tribunal is divided into two divisions: the Entire Tribunal and the Small Claims Division. Although any case over which the Tribunal has subject matter jurisdiction may be filed in the Entire Tribunal, an expedited hearing may be available in the Small Claims Division. Generally, the Small Claims Division has jurisdiction over proceedings: (1) in which residential property is exclusively involved; (2) property other than residential property is involved, but the assessed valuation of the property, after applying the state equalization factor, is not increased or decreased by more than $100,000.00; or (3) the appeal involves any other tax over which the tribunal has jurisdiction, but the amount of the tax in dispute is $6,000.00 or less.

The Tribunal serves as a de novo (new hearing) appeals court. Taxpayers appealing property tax assessments must appeal to the Tribunal by June 30 of the disputed year from their local Boards of Review. In non-property tax cases, a taxpayer must file an appeal with the Tribunal within 35 days from the date that the Department of Treasury issues its final assessment..

Recent decisions dating from October 1, 1995, until the present are contained on the Tribunal's web site. Cases are classified as follows:

The Tribunal's web site also contains the text of applicable rules of practice, plus a telephone directory listing important phone numbers.
