Court of Appeals vacates Michigan Tax Tribunal
On April 19, 2011, the Michigan Court of Appeals issued its opinion and order vacating the judgment of the Michigan Tax Tribunal. Robert J. Kull represented the Petitioners in this property tax appeal. The Court of Appeals determined that the Petitioners were denied their right to due process of law when the Tax Tribunal issued its opinion and judgment without a full and fair hearing. The case involved the delayed uncapping of the taxable value of residential property following an alleged transfer of ownership. The Court of Appeals remanded the matter to the Tax Tribunal for further proceedings. Michigan laws at issue included MCL 211.27a, 211.27b, 205.735 and 205.735a.
