Property taxation and assessment administration are two cornerstones of township operations. From assessment and board of review meetings, all the way to tax collection— it's essential that board members have an understanding of how the process works. Learn more about the Headlee Amendment and Proposal A, as well as truth in taxation, assessing and equalization. Delve into a variety of revenue sources coming into the township, including millages, administrative fees and special assessments.
This course is divided into two webcasts segments. To receive TGA credit, candidates must view both webcasts segments, complete and pass the post-webcast quiz, and complete and return a Practical Application Commitment (PAC) form (found here) to MTA.
