Our Assessor, Lisa Bennett, is the official who estimates the value of real property within the Town's boundaries. This value is converted into an assessment, which is one component in the computation of real property tax bills. The Town of Livonia is the designated assessing authority for the Town and Village of Livonia, and for the School Districts for Town of Livonia properties. The Town of Livonia assesses at 100% of market value.
