Assessments | Board of Review |


The Oakland County Department of Equalization provides assessing services for the City of Berkley and is responsible for appraising all real and personal property in the City.

Property Assessment Notices
Notices are mailed each February to all Berkley taxpayers. Every March, our local Board of Review conducts hearings to review appeals of property assessments. The Board also meets every July and December to correct any clerical errors on the assessment roll.

Complete tax and assessing information can be looked up in person for no charge or is available on Oakland County’s web site for a fee.

Your Assessing Questions Answered
Do you have questions about your property assessment? Our assessing representative from Oakland County will spend the second Tuesday of each month at Berkley City Hall. The assessor will be available to meet with residents in person (by appointment) or to take your call.

Call 248-658-3316 to make an appointment or leave a call back number.

Board of Review

The purpose of the meeting is to act on changes in state equalized value and taxable value which were the result of:

  • Value appeals - March only
  • Clerical errors - July and December
  • Poverty appeals - March, July and December
  • Michigan Tax Tribunal decisions - March, July or December

Poverty Exemption

To obtain a Poverty Exemption you must first complete and return personal financial data forms. These forms are available from the City of Berkley Treasurer's office. 

Assessment Notices

Sometime in February, Oakland County will be mailing assessment notices to all Berkley property owners. You should receive your notice by the end of February each year. Be sure to read your notice carefully. The information on this notice determines how much you will pay in property taxes for the current year.

If you disagree with the information on this notice you have an opportunity to appeal your assessment to the Board of Review which meets every March.
