If I do not receive my tax bill and I miss the due date am I liable for the interest and penalties?

Yes, failure to receive the bill does not eliminate the penalties. As a property owner it is your responsibility to make sure you receive, and pay your taxes in a timely fashion. If you do not receive your tax bill by the third week of July or December, you should call the Treasurer's Office at 248-530-1401 for another copy. Late summer and winter bills accrue interest at the rate of ¾ of 1% per month. This rate of interest was established as a part of the City Charter and cannot be waived by City Employees. Payments made after February 14th are also subject to a 3% penalty. Please call the Treasurer's office for the correct payoff amount.
