“A non-profit that launched last April, the Detroit Justice Center, is offering assistance with the appeals process. Legal Director and Staff Attorney for the Center, Desiree Ferguson, says the free service is available to residents who want to make sure they’re being charged the right amount in property taxes. If residents call or email the center, Ferguson says the non-profit will send a legal worker out to their homes.
“Once we have procured market comparables on your home, we will know whether you’ve been over-assessed or not. And if we find that you have been, then we will pursue the appeal on your behalf,” says Ferguson.”
