Will Equalization raise my taxes?

The goal of Equalization's appraisal or sales studies is not to modify individual properties' assessments; rather, it is the function of the local Assessor to annually establish assessed and taxable values on an individual bases.   The scale of Equalization is greater.  Any potential impact of Equalization would affect an entire classification of property in a local unit (for example, all commercial property in Delta Twp or all Agricultural properties in Benton Twp).  The value that is calculated for your property will be analyzed as part of an aggregate along with other properties.
