NOTE: THE TOWNSHIP DOES NOT ACCEPT CREDIT OR DEBIT CARDS
The Michigan State Legislature has approved a shift of the County
taxes that were collected in December of each Year. That shift was
completed in the tax year of 2007. Now 100% of the Kalamazoo County
operating millage will be collected each summer with the remaining
Kalamazoo County Safety millage collected on each winter tax bill.
Payable July 1, 2016 thru September 14, 2016 without penalty or
interest. From September 15 thru September 30 a 1% interest charge
will be added by the township. An additional 1% per month will be
added by the township to the unpaid balance on the 1st of each month
thereafter through February 14th, 2017. Between February 15th and
February 28 an additional 3% penalty will be added. On March 1, 2017
and there after additional charges will be added by Kalamazoo County
as stated below under Winter Taxes. Checks are payable to: Pavilion Township, 7510 East Q. Ave., Scotts, MI 49088
DEFERMENT OF SUMMER TAXES:
The law provides that beginning September 15, 2016 1% interest be
added to the tax bill each month or portion of a month. However, taxes
may be deferred without penalty until February 14, 2017, if the
taxpaying property owner is 62 years or older, or totally and
permanently disabled and has a household income of $40,000 or less per
year. Applications for deferment are available through the township
Treasurer's office and returned to that office by September 14, 2016.
Please check to see if your tax bill is coded with a mortgage
company number. If you have an escrow account, and this tax bill is
coded with a number and a "Bank Name" your mortgage company has
requested a copy of your tax bill, and one has been provided to them.
If there is no number in that box, a copy of the bill has not been
sent to your mortgage company. Therefore, you should enclose one copy
of this tax bill with your next mortgage payment.
Payable December 1, 2016 through February 14, 2017 without penalty
or interest. A 3% penalty will be added if taxes are paid between
February 15, 2017 thru February 28, 2017. Checks are payable to Pavilion Township, 7510 East Q. Ave., Scotts, MI 49088.
Beginning March 1, 2017, all
real property taxes are delinquent and must be paid to: Kalamazoo County Treasurer, 201
W. Kalamazoo Ave., Kalamazoo MI 49007.
NOTE: Please submit separate checks when paying Summer and Winter taxes together.
NON- SUFFICIENT FUND CHECKS:
Checks are accepted as conditional payment of taxes. If a check
is not honored by your bank, the property tax will be considered
unpaid, and will be placed back on the tax roll. A service charge will
be applied for returned checks.
FAILURE TO RECEIVE TAX NOTICES:
Failure to send or receive such notice shall not in any way
prejudice the right to collect or enforce the payment of any tax.
STATEMENT OF RIGHT TO APPEAL NON-PRINCIPAL RESIDENT ONLY:
You have the right to appear at the July and/or December Boards
of Review for Principal Resident and Agricultural Exemptions.
Available December 1, 2016 thru February 28, 2017. Bring rabies
vaccination and sterilization papers.
If the statement "Summer Taxes Owing" is on your Winter Tax Bill,
it's an indication that your Summer Taxes are delinquent. Therefore,
penalties and interest have been added. You should contact Pavilion
Township Treasurer, Robyn Froberg at (269) 327-0462 for the actual
amount due on your Summer Tax Bill. Separate checks are required when
paying your Summer and Winter Taxes.
