Deferment Information

The Michigan General Property Tax Act allows certain citizens to DEFER their summer property taxes.  To qualify for the deferment, a township resident must have a household income below $40,000 and meet one or more of the following conditions:

  • Is a totally and permanently disabled person, blind person, paraplegic, quadriplegic, eligible serviceperson, eligible veteran, or eligible widow or widower.
  • Is 62 years of age or older, including the un-remarried surviving spouse of a person who was 62 years of age or older at the time of death.

 Township residents who qualify and wish to defer their summer property taxes can obtain an APPLICATION FOR DEFERMENT OF SUMMER TAXES at the township office or from this website.  Approval of the Application for Deferment of Summer Taxes only defers the due date without penalty until February 14.  It does not lower or eliminate the tax.
