It cannot be stressed enough that Berrien County Equalization has historically decided to provide sample forms as a courtesy and we do not guarantee that they will be provided in the future. Historically, sample forms have been provided at the earliest possible convenience which is usually early in May. Please keep checking this page. If you need forms sooner, please consider preparing your own form using information from the L-4028.
The L-4034 is nothing other than a calculations worksheet. It does not get filed but rather, it is an optional tool to bridge the L-4028 to the L-4029.
The Tax Rate Request is a mandatory form. Each Taxing Unit that seeks to levy property taxes must file an L-4029 with the county.
Please see the top right corner of the form.
September 30 of each year. However, it is typical and helpful to submit the form much earlier, particularly if you are seeking a summer levy.
Much of the information comes from the Taxing Unit with regard to millage types and dates. However, the information having to do with millage rollbacks comes from the L-4028.
The L-4028 shows all of the millage reduction calculations for the county. It is the only form in this process that is the county's responsibility.
The L-4028 is due on or before the first Monday in June. That said, the Berrien County L-4028 can usually be found on our website in early May.
