As a member of the Coalition for Property Tax Justice, which has been organizing against the $600 million overassessment of property values in Detroit that drove much of the tax foreclosure crisis, ReGrid (Loveland) created the Detroit Assessment Gauge tool. The tool compares the assessed value to the average property value from the US Census. The tool is meant to help homeowners check if they may have been overassessed.
Outlier Media reported:
A recently published audit performed by an independent accounting firm hired by the city found mismanagement and little to no standards at Detroit’s Assessor’s Office during those years.
