2021 Winter Taxes are payable December 1, 2021 through February 14, 2022.
If taxes are paid between February 14 and February 28, 2022, include 3% Penalty.

Beginning March 1, 2022, unpaid taxes can not be paid at the Township offices and must be paid directly to Robert Wittenberg, Oakland County Treasurer, 1200 North Telegraph, Pontiac, Michigan 48341 with additional penalties.  During the month of March, a revised statement from the Township Treasurer must accompany your remittance to the County Treasurer.

 

REPORT CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP PROMPTLY.  FAILURE TO RECEIVE A TAX STATEMENT DOES NOT EXEMPT THE PROPERTY OWNER FROM PENALTIES WHEN TAXES BECOME DELINQUENT.  CHECK YOUR PARCEL I.D.  WITH YOUR DEED OR LAND CONTRACT.  IF YOU PAY ON THE WRONG PROPERTY, THE LAW HOLDS YOU FULLY RESPONSIBLE.

If your taxes are not included in your house payment, you can pay them in person at the Township offices, by mail, or by using the drop box located on the east side of our building.

For your convenience, partial payments are accepted, throughout the tax season.  Any questions regarding this method of payment, please call the Treasurer’s office at 248-627-2853 for further assistance.


Credit Cards for Tax Payments

The Township does not accept credit/debit card payments.  However, you are now able to pay taxes online with a debit/credit card.  go to www.oakgov.com and select the link PAY TAXES.


Taxes Paid by Mortgage Company

Taxpayers with a mortgage company will not receive a copy of their tax statement. If a Taxpayer wishes a copy of their Tax Statement, they may come into the Treasurers Office and pick one up, FREE OF CHARGE. A copy will be sent to their mortgage company. If your mortgage company has recently changed, please have them send the Treasurer’s Office a written request as to where the tax statement should be sent.  REMEMBER, FAILURE TO RECEIVE A TAX STATEMENT DOES NOT EXEMPT PROPERTY OWNER FROM PENALTIES IF THE PROPERTY TAX BECOMES DELINQUENT.
