Appeals Process
We ask you to discuss your value changes with Assessing staff before making an appointment with the Board of Review. This allows us to exchange information and explain how your value was determined. Please call 269-966-3369 or come into our office at 10 North Division Street to discuss your value with Assessing staff.

If you’re not satisfied with the outcome of the Assessor’s Review, or if you prefer the formal appeal process, you can appeal to the Board of Review.

We have 5 Battle Creek residents on our Board that are appointed by the Mayor and City Commission. They meet each year in March to review property values and hear appeals from property owners.

Please call our office at 269-966-3369 to make an appointment and be prepared to present evidence supporting your opinion of value. The best evidence to provide is sales of properties in your area that are similar to yours in style, size, age and condition.
