TAX ASSESSMENTS - SUMMARY INFORMATION:
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.

Payable July 1, 2019 thru September 16, 2019 without penalty or interest. From September,17 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, 2020. Between February,15th and February, 28 an additional 3% penalty will be added. On March 2, 2020 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:

However, taxes may be deferred without penalty until February 14, 2020, 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 16, 2019.
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 2, 2019 through February 14, 2020 without penalty or interest. A 3% penalty will be added if taxes are paid between February 15, 2020 thru March 2, 2020. Checks are payable to Pavilion Township, 7510 East Q. Ave., Scotts, MI 49088.
