Message to Property Tax Payers

The due date for Summer 2015 property taxes is Monday, February 14th.  While the Township Offices will be closed on Monday, you still have plenty of options to pay your taxes before the interest of 1% per month is applied to your bill.  First of all, you are welcome to use the drop box at the Township Hall.  This box is secure and located to the left of the front door.  You can also pay at the Independent Bank branch at Zimmer and Grand River Rd.  There is no cost for this service.  If you follow the link on the Township website, you can pay using your credit card or bank account routing number.  Be aware that these methods are not free.   Credit card use will result in an addition of 2.65% to your bill and using the electronic transfer from your bank account will cost $1.50.  Both of these convenience fees are added as a convenience fee by the vendor operating the payment website and are not added to Township revenues.  If you have questions, please feel free to call us at the office.
