Property Tax Bills—How & When to Pay
Property tax bills are mailed out ONCE a year, usually in mid-July, and cover four quarterly payments. The bill mailed in July includes the third and fourth quarters of the current year and the preliminary first and second quarters of the next year.
Payments are due quarterly: February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1. We offer a 10 day grace period, the maximum allowed by state law. If the 10th day falls on a weekend or a township holiday, the grace period is extended to the township’s next business day.
