Wayne County Tax Refund Settlement

Publication Date: Jan 24, 2022

This webpage has been created for the benefit of Wayne County taxpayers who may be due tax refunds for having been overcharged when the county incorrectly valued their agricultural land. A list of refunds and claim forms may be found below.

To find out if you are a member of the Class Action Settlement, first, click on the "List of Refunds Due Category 1 Class Member." If you find your name there, you do not have to do anything further to receive your refund.

If you don't find your name in the first list, click on "List of Refunds Due Category 2 Class Member." If your name is on that list, that means you no longer own the property on which a refund is due and you will need to file a "Claim Form for Category 2 Class Member" on or before March 25, 2022, to give the Administrator your new address. Click on "Instructions for Completing Claims Forms" for more information on filing a claim.

If you don't find your name on either list and you believe you are a member of the Settlement Class, then you will need to file a "Claim for Missing Class Member" on or before March 10, 2022.

If your name is on one of the two lists, but you do not believe the amount of the refund shown is correct, then you will need to file a "Claim Form for Filing an Objection" on or before March 10, 2022.
