Questions concerning property assessments should be addressed to the Deputy Assessor. 

The Assessor's Office is responsible for the equitable distribution of the property tax burden under current law, for maintaining ownership records for the City of South Haven real and personal property and for administration of the Board of Review.

The office of the Assessor is able to provide the following information for property located within the City limits of South Haven: 

  • Property identification number

  • Taxpayer name
  • Taxpayer address
  • Owner name (if different than taxpayer)
  • Lot size
