Mr. Stewart present. States house sitting empty. Not finished. Rough electrical, no drywall etc.
Underwater on two properties.

MBOR Action:
Review of prior MBOR actions and the current record card to discover that the home is at 50%
construction. Lowering of the 2009 was to reduce the construction to 30%; however, resulting
information collected from the building department indicate that the entire home is completed on
the outside for siding/windows&doors/roofing and all mechanical roughin’s
(plumbing/heating/electrical) were completed. No additional work had been completed under
inspections in the 2009 calendar year. The 2009 construction also appears to have been at 50%.
However, a reduction in construction percentage was given last year to reduce the 50% to 30%.
A review of percentages of construction was completed. It is established that the home is properly
assessed at the correct percent of construction 50%. The review produced that it may even be
below the correct percentage for completed construction; as each of the rough-in mechanicals
equate at 5% each making construction percent at 65% vs 50%. Board affirms the existing
assessment at 50% construction.

that we can sell this property for over $400km the best offer we have had is $231K. This is less

proposed taxable value is grossly out of touch with the market. Your $19 estimated reduction is
an insult in my mind.

Minutes:
Petition appeal of the Assessed/Taxable value. Petition states….In searching the market value of
the home (the home listing history, my 1/6/10 purchase price, and the similar home recent sales, I
believe that the Taxable Value & the Assessed Value of the home should be reduced. Please
see the attached documentation for additional details. Thank you

Submitted closing & listing sheets. Typed letter attached also requesting the Taxable value &
Assessed Value be changed. Talks about the original listing; how it was reduced; and then re-
listed again. He notes that the home is 2 bedroom vs 3 bedroom like other similar homes. That
the property acreage is under 10 acres; thus it can not be currently subdivided under the 5 Acre
zoning. A map is submitted along with the data.


MBOR Action:
Property value was reduced by assessor from 213,100 in 2009 to 179,800 for 2010. Based on
sales (foreclosures included) that occurred within the sales dates as prescribed by the State Tax
Commission through 9/30/2009. Further reduction may occur in 2011 is unknown at this time for
this foreclosure purchase that occurred in the time study for the 2011 sales review. Land value is
assessed accordingly with like properties in the AG zoning for less than 10 acres. The bedroom
count is an informational item. The calculation of value is not by the bedrooms. Assessor was
requested to revise the informational item from 3 to 2 bedrooms due to the lack of a closet
currently.

Taxable Value calculated at the capped value; Taxable value is the Capped or the Assessed
value; which ever of the two is lower is the Taxable Value.

2010 Assessed value was affirmed by the Board of Review; Petitioner’s request is denied.

Minutes:
Petition appeal of the Assessed/Taxable value and Exemption for Qualified Agricultural property
exemption from 51% to 90%. Petition states…enclosed letter.

Letter protesting the Assessed Value & Taxable Value of the property in South Lyon. Indicated
that due to winter storms that the barn & tool/tack house were destroyed in 2008 and that they
were removed from the property in 2009. He indicates that the house on the property is being
rented out. That in August of 2009 the tenants trashed the house and left. He is making a
statement that the home is no longer habitable and too expensive to repair. He is asking for a
reconsideration of the assessment in light of the above.


MBOR Action:
Request needs to be verified. No documents/photo’s of the information provided to verify that the
items in protest have occurred. Review with the Assessor indicates that if the inspection
completed between 2009/2010 shows the outbuildings were removed that they will be corrected
or a visit to the property is doable to review the condition of the rental home if the property owner
would like her to make an inspection to correct the value to reflect the condition of the home.
Assessor was not aware of the damage to the home. Property owner has not contacted her
regarding the situation.

Owner’s protest of Exemption for Qualified Agricultural property is currently 51%. The owner has
not filed a new form requesting the exemption; moreover, the request was never received/denied
by the Assessor for the request. It is suggested by the Assessor that we send the owner a new
form and have him file a new exemption request for her review. The percentage of calculation for
QA is a ratio of the Building (Sing Fam Dwg rented + 1 Acre of land with it) to the overall value of
the property for percent. The Assessor stated that she would review the percentage calculated
on the property existing at 51% to determine if it should be changed to another percentage. The
Board of Review has affirmed the 51% exemption, as the assessor has not changed it from 2009
to 2010; nor has she denied the 51% existing exemption.

Taxable Value calculated at the capped value; Taxable value is the Capped or the Assessed
value; which ever of the two is lower is the Taxable Value.
