    The Assessor has the responsibility of preparing the assessment roll for the City for all property that is not exempt. The Assessor annually determines the true cash value of each taxable property within the City of Grand Rapids. The State of Michigan Constitution mandates property must be assessed at 50% of true cash value.

    Proposal A was a constitutional amendment passed in 1994 that placed additional limits on the values used to calculate property taxes. Beginning in 1995, property taxes were calculated by levying the millage on the taxable value, rather than the state equalized value (SEV).
