The responsibility of the Assessor (Oakland County Equalization) is to establish the annual assessment on all real and personal property located within the Township. The Assessor sets values for both the Township and the Village of Lake Orion. If your principal residence is located in either the Village or the Township and you have claimed a Homestead Exemption your property is not subject to school operating millage which greatly reduces your annual property tax. If you believe you are eligible for the exemption but your tax statement does not indicate 100% Homestead, contact us as soon as possible. You must own and occupy the property before June 1 to qualify for this exemption. Residential property that you own which is adjacent to your principal residence also qualifies for the Homestead exemption.
For actual tax amounts, please contact the Treasurer’s office at (248) 391-0304, extension 8000.
