The duties of the Assessor's Department intersect with two public boards, both of which play a role in the appeals process.
At the local level, city and township boards of appeal and equalization hear taxpayer appeals and have the authority to order changes in value and classification.

Appeals may also be brought to the County Board of Appeal & Equalization, provided that an appeal has first been made at the current year's Local Boards of Appeal and Equalization or that a property is in an unorganized township.
