The Supervisor is the chief assessing officer of the township, responsible for assessing property values within the township at 50 percent of its true cash value (MCL 41.61 ). In assessing property, the supervisor and assessing officials may use only those manuals approved by the State Tax Commission. MCL 41.61 permits the township board to provide for the appointment of assessors for the township who have all the powers and duties of the supervisor in the assessment of property.

The Assessor is responsible for the inventory of all property within the Township, and the valuation of the taxable parcels therein. Both real property (Land and Building), and personal property (tangible) held by businesses are taxable.

The office operates under the requirements of what is commonly referred to as the General Property Tax l aw which was originally P.A. 206 of 1893. Most statutes are located between MCL 211.1 and MCL211.157.
