Be ready for this tax season. 

Here are important dates for your upcoming City tax statements:

  • 2019 Summer Taxes can be paid from July 1, 2019, through September 16, 2019, without interest. Payments must be received in the Treasurer’s Department by this date, postmarks are not accepted.
  • 2019 Winter Taxes can be paid from December 1, 2019, through February 14, 2020, without interest. Payments must be received in the Treasurer’s Department by this date, postmarks are not accepted.

Important Information for New Home Buyers

Tax bills are prepared in June and November. The transfer of property during that period can result in tax bills being directed to the previous owner, rather than the new responsible party. The U.S. Post Office directs mail based upon the addressee information on record, thus they may forward tax bills to the former owner's new address. 

New owners should contact the Treasurer's Department at 248.370.9420 to make certain they receive their bill.


What to do when you get your tax bill:

  1. Examine your statement closely to assure accuracy.
  2. Check your parcel I.D. number before paying your taxes. You are responsible if you pay on the wrong parcel.
  3. Failure to receive your tax bill does not waive interest and/or penalties.

 

NOTE: Tax and Water payments must be made on two separate checks.

Fiscal Year Rate Sheets

When purchasing or selling a home, the closing title company often pro-rates the taxes based on the amount of time each party lived in the home. However, not all taxing authorities operate on the same fiscal year. To help better understand, we have provided a list below of the fiscal year sheets. Each one contains a breakdown of the taxing authorities and their corresponding fiscal year.
