Why isn’t my new assessment 50% of my purchase price?

The simple answer is that it is against the law. MCL 211.27 states that the purchase price is no longer the presumptive True Cash Value of a property. The assessment is established by analyzing other sales in the area of the property and determining the most usual selling price on tax day.
