TAX ASSESSMENTS - SUMMARY INFORMATION:
NOTE: THE TOWNSHIP NOW ACCEPTS CREDIT OR DEBIT CARDS (ON LINE ONLY)
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 millages (Safety, Housing, Senior, Juvenile Home, 911 and Special Assessments) to be collected on each winter tax bill.
Payable July 1, 2022 thru September 14, 2022 without penalty or interest. From September 15 thru September 30, a 1% interest charge will be added. An additional 1% per month will be added to the unpaid balance on the 1st of each month thereafter through February 14th, 2023. Between February15th and February 28th, an additional 3% penalty will be added. On March 1, 2023 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, 2022 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, 2023, 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, 2023.
Please check to see if your tax bill is coded with a mortgage company . If you have an escrow account, and this tax bill is coded with 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 bank name 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, 2022 through February 14, 2023 without penalty or interest. A 3% penalty will be added if taxes are paid between February 15, 2023 thru February 28, 2023. Checks are payable to Pavilion Township, 7510 East Q. Ave., Scotts, MI 49088.
Beginning March 1, 2023, all real property taxes are delinquent and must be paid to: Kalamazoo County Treasurer, 201 W. Kalamazoo Ave., Kalamazoo MI 49007.
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.
