What should I do if I do not receive a tax bill?

Tax bills are mailed to the last known address on July 1st and December 1st of each year. Every attempt is made to make certain the property owners receive their bills. The tax law clearly states the property owner is responsible for the timely payment of the taxes even if they have not received a tax bill. Failure to receive your tax bill does not exempt you from being assessed late charges. If you do not receive a tax bill, please contact the Treasurer’s Office immediately at 248-437-2240.

Why have I received a tax bill when my mortgage company pays my tax bill?

As a courtesy, an Information Copy is sent to you for your records. Please check the copy that you have received. If it states “Information Copy” on the lower right-hand side, then the original bill has been sent to the mortgage company whose name appears on the top left-hand side of your tax bill. If your mortgage company does not receive your tax bill, please notify them to contact the Treasurer’s Office at 248-437-2240..

Can I use a credit card to pay my taxes?

You may charge your taxes through http://www.paylocaltaxes.com, Oakland County’s credit card processing service provider. Please note: a convenience fee will be charged to the taxpayer.

Can I make a partial payment on my taxes?

Yes, we do accept partial payments at the Treasurer’s Office during collection.

What is the difference between “homestead” and “non-homestead” tax rates?

If you own and occupy your home as your principal residence, it should qualify as homestead, and it may be exempt from a portion of your local school operating taxes. Non-principal residences and businesses are considered non-homestead and are liable for school operating taxes.

Where do I file my homestead affidavits and property transfer affidavits?

You must file your homestead and property transfer affidavits with our Treasurer’s Office. The property transfer affidavit must be filed within 45 days of closing on the purchase of your property.

My taxes are too high. How can I find out if my property is being fairly taxed?

Your taxes are based on the taxable value of your property. You should contact the Oakland County Assessing Department for an explanation of how your taxable value was computed. You should also check your assessor’s field sheet for errors. Check comparable properties in your area. Discuss all these things with the Assessor’s Office.

Do you accept postmarks?

Yes, we do accept postmarks for the September 14th and February 14th deadlines.

Am I responsible to pay penalties and interest if my mortgage company pays my taxes late?

No, the mortgage company should be responsible.

Where do I make name and address changes?

You can call the Treasurer’s Office at 248-437-2240 to make name and address changes. The Treasurer’s Office will provide the information to the Assessor’s Office.
