    The opportunity to appeal the Assessed Value begins with the Assessor’s Review held during the first full two weeks in February.  The City of Grand Rapids Charter requires an appeal to the Assessor’s Review prior to any appeal to the local March Board of Review.  Appeals must be made on the City’s Appeal form.  Only those property owners that appealed at Assessor’s Review have the opportunity to appeal to the March Board of Review.  The March Board of Review has jurisdiction over the current year assessment only. If dissatisfied with the action of the March Board of Review, the property owner may appeal further to the Michigan Tax Tribunal.
