Michele McGraw. Field Representative
Amy Pashby has been Putnam Township’s Assessor since 1993. Her team includes Leah Sisco, Assessor’s Assistant and Michelle McCraw, Field Representative. Both assist with the day to day functions of the department.
The office is responsible for the assessment of real and personal property in the Township, including the Village of Pinckney. This involves inventorying, evaluating, calculating taxable value, and then preparing assessment rolls. Property Transfer Affidavits, deeds, Principal Residence Exemptions and Veterans Exemptions are all filed and kept in the office.
Maintaining accurate property records is of primary importance in the Assessor’s department. A Property Record card is kept on file for all real property at the Township. Information recorded on the card includes building sketches, year a structure was built, square footage, land size, legal description, property transfers and building permits. Property owners are encouraged to stop by the Township and review their property card for accuracy.
If there has been a transfer of ownership, deed or a land use permit filed with the Township, an owner should expect a member of the assessing staff to visit the property. The assessor is responsible for visiting 20% of the property in the Township every year, this is another reason the department might visit.
Assessing records are available during regular Township Hall hours. Assessing information is also available online, by clicking the Property Tax and Assessing link in the green box.
