Aramada Township

Assessing Department

Assessor - Tom Schlichting - in on Monday and Wednesdays

Assessing is the method used to determine how much taxpayers will pay in property taxes. Only townships and cities have the authority to assess property. Villages are required to have assessment rolls, but villages do not assess property because all property in a village is within a township, so the village assessments must be identical to those set by the township assessor. The township assessor’s duties include:

  • Maintaining and updating the assessment files and computer records on every property in the Township process
  • Annually assessing all real property and personal property in the township, following state law and state tax commission guidelines and filing state and county reports and documents as required
  • Reviewing and recording all lot splits and combines, following the laws of the State of Michigan
  • Providing a copy of assessments within the village for use by the Village of Armada
  • Assisting and advising he township treasurer as needed for preparation of the tax roll
  • Working with all tax collecting units to ensure the accuracy of total tax collections and settlement between units
  • Issuing addresses by owner request outside of the village limits.

Township Plat Maps

The township is divided up into many maps and in order to find which map your parcel in question might be on, you'll need to open up any map. On the bottom of the map, by the legend, you will find all the plat maps superimposed over a map of the township. Simply locate your parcel by its crossroads and it should tell you which map you need.
