Tax payment deadline extended to February 29

The deadline for payment of 2007 Winter taxes has been extended from February 14 to February 29, 2008. The City Council approved the extension during its January 15 meeting.

To avoid potentially long lines at the cashier's office at City Hall, taxpayers are urged to mail their payments or use the drop box outside the Pine Street entrance to City Hall. The municipal complex is located at 23555 Goddard Road.

Taxpayers are reminded that full payment of 2007 Summer and 2007 Winter taxes must be made by the close of business February 29, 2008. Payments cannot be accepted by the City Treasurer beyond that date for real property taxes. Unpaid real property tax bills are transferred to the Wayne County Treasurer for delinquent collections with penalties and interest. Payments of delinquent personal property taxes will continue to be accepted by the City of Taylor Treasurer and cannot be paid to the Wayne County Treasurer.
