The Excelsior Township Assessor is the person who assesses all property in the township to make sure that it is valued at 50% of the current market value. This value is then used for property tax calculations for each property. Excelsior Township has approximately 1200 properties with an assessed value in 2014 of $55,730,940 and a Taxable Value of $49,099,694.
The assessor must follow State of Michigan rules and guidelines when doing his assessments.
