Payment of Taxes through a Mortgage Company
Your lender may require you to pay your local property taxes monthly, along with your mortgage payment. If so, the Treasurer’s Department sends your tax bill directly to the mortgage company, bank, or the servicing agent who handles your mortgage. If you pay off your mortgage, your mortgage company must notify the city that it no longer wants the bill. Once we receive notice from them, we will delete the mortgage code from your bill and you will then receive your property tax bill from us directly at your home address.
After Hours Payments
For your convenience, a night deposit box for payment of bills (check or money orders — NO cash please) is located on the exterior of city hall, to the left of the main entrance. Please bring an envelope to enclose your payment in.

Summer Property Tax Deferments
If you are age 62 years of age or older and have a household income of less than $40,000, you may defer paying your summer property taxes until February 14th. This will enable you to use your Michigan Homestead Property Tax Refund to help pay your total property tax bill. Forms for this deferral are available at the Treasurer’s Department, and must be filed with the Treasurer’s Department.
