Who can protest to the July 21, 2020 board of review?

  1. Do local units need to open the July Boards of Review for all new protests?

Yes. Pursuant to Executive Order 2020-87 the July Board of Review must hear protests related to matters that would have otherwise been heard by the March Board of Review; this is not an opportunity “for a rehearing or reconsideration by a July Board of Review of a protest, request, or other property tax matter that was previously denied by a March Board of Review.”  Additionally, the July Board of Review must hear protests that the 2020 March Board of Review was unable to act on.

  • An owner of property that is a “Principal Residence” on May 1 may appeal to the July Board of Review in the year for which an exemption was claimed or in the immediate succeeding 3 years if the exemption was not on the tax roll.  For taxes levied after December 31, 2011, an owner who owned and occupied a principal residence on June 1 or November 1 for which the exemption was not on the tax roll may file an appeal with the July or December Board of Review in the year for which the exemption was claimed or in the immediate succeeding three years if the exemption was not on the tax roll. MCL 211.7cc(19) .
  • Request for current year only for poverty exemptions, but not poverty exemptions denied by the March Board of Review.
  • Request for P.A. 161 of 2013 Disabled Veterans Exemption.
  • Correct clerical errors or mutual mistake of facts.
  • If a taxpayer protested to the March Board of Review and a decision was issued by the

March Board of Review, can the taxpayer appeal to the July Board of Review?

 No. If the March Board of Review issued a decision for a parcel of property then that decision  must be appealed to the Michigan Tax Tribunal (or to the State Tax Commission if the appeal is related to classification). That same taxpayer cannot file a second protest to the July Board of Review if there was a protest and decision by the March Board of Review on the same issue. The July Board of Review has no authority to reconsider a determination made by the March Board of Review.

  • Can taxpayers protest to the July Boards of Review by letter?

            Yes. MCL 211.30 already provides that non-resident taxpayers may protest by letter. The

Executive Order states that resident taxpayers must also be allowed to file a protest to the July Board of Review by letter without a personal appearance by the taxpayer or an agent. The local unit does not have to adopt an ordinance or resolution to allow resident taxpayers to protest by letter, as this is already provided for and required by the Executive Order, which is controlling.  See Executive Order 2020-87(3)(c), (5)

  •  Can a taxpayer who missed the February 20, 2020 deadline for filing Form 5278 or Form

5076 and who did not late file directly to the March Board of Review file a protest to the

July Board of Review? Yes. P.A. 261-264 of 2017 changed the appeal procedure for both the Small Business Taxpayer Exemption and the Eligible Manufacturing Personal Property Exemption. Taxpayers who missed the February 20, 2020 filing deadline for either exemption could file a late application directly with the March Board of Review. Executive Order 2020-87 extends March Board of Review authority to the July Board of Review. This means that Form 5278 and 5076 can be late filed with the July Board of Review. 

All required forms and documentation shall be received five days prior to said meeting.
