Winter Property Taxes
Winter 2015 property tax bills will be mailed on December 1, 2015. If you do not receive a tax bill, please contact the Township Hall and we will send a new one, or you can get the amount due by clicking Online Property Tax Information. Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the taxpayer to pay their property taxes timely, whether a tax bill has been received or not. Failure to physically receive a bill does not excuse the obligation or due date.
Winter property taxes are due every year on February 14. Since this date falls on a Sunday in 2016, taxes would normally be due on Monday, September 15. However, due to the President’s Day holiday, taxes are due by 5 pm on Tuesday, February 16, 2016.
***Taxes that are not paid by February 16 will be charged a 3% penalty.
***Taxes not paid by March 1, 2016 should be sent, or paid in person at the County Treasurer’s Office at the Mason Courthouse. Please call the County Treasurer’s office at 517-676-7220 for an exact amount owned.
The last day property taxes may be paid at the Township Hall without a 3% penalty is February 16, 2016. On March 1, 2016, all unpaid bills are turned over to the Ingham County Treasurer for collection. The Township Hall will be open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Tuesday, February 16th. Regular Township Hall office hours are 10:00 to 4:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 10:00 to 7:00 on Wednesdays. The office is closed on Mondays and Fridays.
Taxes may be paid by mail, drop slot at the Township Hall, online by following the link on the Township website (2.65 % fee), or in person at either the Township Hall or Independent Bank on Grand River and Zimmer Road. Postmarks are not accepted as a payment date. All taxpayers who pay by mail or in the drop slot will receive an official property tax receipt by return mail, ONLY if they have requested one by checking the box on their tax payment stub.
Payments made at Independent Bank (1245 E. Grand River location ONLY) must be accompanied by your payment stub.
