DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL


Property tax assessment. Provides that a county or township assessing official who receives a notice for review filed by a taxpayer shall hold a preliminary informal meeting with the taxpayer to resolve as many issues as possible. Provides that if a township assessor determines that the township assessor has made an error in an assessment, the township assessor shall, on the township assessor's own initiative, correct the error. Specifies that the township assessor shall: (1) correct the error without requiring the taxpayer to file a notice with the county property tax assessment board of appeals requesting a review of the township assessor's original assessment; and (2) give notice of the correction. Provides that the township assessor may not increase an assessment under these provisions. Provides that if a correction results in a reduction of the amount of an assessment of a taxpayer's property, the taxpayer is entitled to a credit on the taxpayer's next tax installment.
