To Divide or Not to Divide

Instructed by Amy DeHaan, MMAO(4), Assessor – Garfield Charter Twp Grand Traverse County

To Divide or Not to Divide has been re-scheduled for September 25, 2020.
This course will be held virtually only.

Do you know how to determine if a split is allowed? Or how to research a parcel’s land division history? What are bonus divisions? And how are they determined? Does a parcel have a clean slate for additional divisions after ten years? Or did that end with the passage of the current act? This course will provide you with this information, and more ... including: why splits can change your starting values in BS&A, how to enter splits in BS&A and how to calculate allocated values for splits. If you are responsible for land divisions, this class is for you!
