2014 Canvass

2014 Canvass

What: The Clinton Township canvassers physically visit each property in the Township to take photos and outside measurements of structures and land improvements in order to verify/update records.

When: May-August 2014 (the canvass started in 2012 and should finish in 2016)

Where: All property in the Township (2014 canvass will focus on residential, including single family homes and condos)

Who: There are three teams of two people. They are Clinton Township employees and will be driving Township vehicles and have Township ID badges. They report to the Assessing Department

Why: The State Tax Commission (STC) performs an audit of assessing requirements on various local units of government each year. One of the requirements is 90% accuracy of record cards (the detailed description of your property including square footages of the buildings, porches, deck, etc). To ensure accuracy, the STC recommends a township annually canvass 20% of its property.

Please note:

  • The canvass team does NOT need to enter your home and will not ask questions regarding the inside of your home
  • If there is no access or they are denied access to your property, the canvassers will leave the property
  • Any improvements (deck, patio, etc) discovered will be added to your assessment. Likewise, any improvements on the record card that are no longer on the property will be removed from your assessment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Assessing Department at 586-286-9468
