Court of Appeals Remanded the Uncapping Case Back to the Tax Tribunal
In Ryzyi v. Township of Bagley, Michigan Court of Appeals, No. 295759, April 19, 2011, the Michigan Court of Appeals was unable to resolve the internal inconsistencies in the Tax Tribunal's orders with respect to the uncapping of a residential property's taxable value for the 2005 through 2008 property tax years. Therefore, the court remanded the case to the Tax Tribunal for further clarification as to why it entered any determination of the taxable value when it previously stated that it had yet to determine whether uncapping should have occurred. Further, the court held that the taxpayers were denied due process when they did not have the opportunity to participate in a hearing before the Tax Tribunal.
