The Equalization Department advises and assists the Board of Commissioners in equalizing property tax assessments on a county-wide basis. In conformance with state directives the Department conducts annual sales and appraisal studies. These studies are used to equalize assessed values for each class of property in each of the seventeen local units of government within Chippewa County. The Department assists local assessing officers in the discovery, listing and valuation of properties for tax purposes, and in the development and use of valuation standards and techniques for the assessment of property. Additionally, the Department performs all data maintenance for the assessment/tax rolls for the out-county area. This includes processing transfer documents received from the Register of Deeds office on a daily basis in order to maintain the names, addresses, and legal descriptions for the production of annual assessment and tax rolls for all townships and DeTour Village.
The Equalization Department also assigns and maintains all 911-addresses in the out-county area (except those in Detour Village and the "downtown" area of Pickford.)
