Q. Are postmarks accepted?
A. Postmarks are not accepted. The date that we receive your payment is the date that it will be processed as paid.

Military Service:
If the property owner has been called up to active military service, notify the township treasurer.

Other important tax information:

  1. If you no longer own the property or change your mailing address, notify the treasurer of the correction. It is the responsibility of the property owner to make sure the treasurer has the correct mailing address to send tax bills and other property tax information.

  2. State law prohibits reduction of penalties and fees for failure to receive a tax bill and/or refund for payment of property tax on the wrong parcel.

  3. Checks are conditional form of payment until cleared by the bank. Checks returned non-sufficient funds may be assessed a collection penalty.

  4. The tax bill may show that a second copy was sent to the person listed as the taxpayer on the roll. If this taxpayer information is not correct, notify the township/city treasurer where the property is located.

  5. Check your tax bill to make sure your principle residence exemption percent is correct. If it is not correct, immediately notify the county treasurer. If the description is not correct, immediately notify the assessor of the local unit where the property is located.

  6. Unless a tax bill is enclosed with the payment or a specific request enclosed with the payment, the payment will be applied to the summer tax due (including any interest due) and the balance of the payment, if any, to the winter tax due.
