Errors and Omissions

Please examine your statement closely to assure accuracy. Please notify our office of any errors as soon as possible. Clerical errors, mutual mistakes of fact and omitted homestead exemptions may be corrected at the December meeting of the Board of Review, provided the township is notified of the error prior to the meeting. After this meeting is held, errors on the current tax bill cannot be corrected until the following year. Failure to receive your tax bill is not cause for, or does not waive interest and/or penalties.

Name and Address Change Requests

Change of names and/or address should be promptly reported. If you have sold your property and received a statement in error, please forward the statement to the new owner or return it to the Treasurer's Office with corrections of name and or address. Grass Lake Charter Township will not change an owners name or address without proper documentation, such as a deed or property transfer affidavit.
