Taxable Value Uncapping Relating to the Transfer of Ownership

Hands-with-Paper-Doll-FamilyAttorney Melisa M. W. Mysliwiec recently spoke to the Greater Lansing Association of Realtors on when taxable value uncaps and when it doesn’t for purposes of property taxes.  The presentation addressed what is considered a transfer of ownership under Michigan law, which results in uncapping of property taxes, and the several exemptions to what is considered a transfer of ownership.  She also discussed the several new exemptions added over the past year, and some holes in the new exemptions.
