As of November 1, 2019, Springfield Township no longer provides assessing service with Township staff. The Township Board has entered into an agreement where Oakland County Equalization shall serve as the Township Assessor of Record. One member of the Township Assessing staff is remaining with the Township and will assist in keeping the change as seamless as possible and providing assistance to property owners. County appraisers may visit your property from time to time rather than employees of the Township. The Township Assessing phone number remains 248-846-6530. Oakland County Equalization staff will be available by phone or by appointment. Oakland County Equalization's number is 248-858-0776
