Assessment & Equalization

Our Mission

The mission of the Assessment and Equalization Division is to professionally survey, record, compile and report assessment and tax related data pertaining to each city and township within Wayne County for the purpose of advising the Wayne County Commission in regard to the equalization of assessments and the apportionment of property taxes as required by the General Property Tax Law and other related statutes.

Additionally, this Division's mission is to provide quality assistance to Wayne County communities in regard to the valuation, assessment and audit of property, as well as assistance in assessment and tax roll preparation, tax billing and other related services.

One of the primary duties of the ASSESSMENT & EQUALIZATION DIVISION is to compile and report Assessment and other tax related data for each City and Township within Wayne County for the purpose of advising the Wayne County Commission in regard to the Equalization of Assessments and the Apportionment of Property Taxes as required by the General Property Tax Law, the Wayne County Charter, and related statutes.
