Property Assessment

Online Property Assessment and Tax Information


Taxpayer

As a taxpayer in Lincoln Township, you are concerned about paying only your fair share of taxes for services received.

In the Assessor's office, we are responsible for estimating the market value of every property in the Township. As we estimate the value of your property, we also make every effort to assure that your assessment is equitable to similar properties.

Assessment change notices are issued each year in February. Please let us know if your mailing address needs to be corrected.

The first meeting of the Board of Review for assessed value appeals meets the second Monday in March.

Checks & Balances

There are two sets of checks and balances in the assessment structure. The first check is at the County level. The County performs sales and appraisal studies to determine the level of assessment. It actually dictates to the assessing department the amount of increase to be spread across the township, by class, annually.

The last check is by the State Tax Commission. The State periodically performs sales and appraisal studies to check the County studies for accuracy.
