Summer Taxes

Summer taxes are due and payable from July 1-September 15 of each year without penalty. Summer taxes that are not paid or postmarked by September 15 are charged a one-time four (4) percent penalty on the unpaid balance. No additional penalties will accrue until March 1, when the delinquent real property taxes are turned over to Midland County. 

The summer tax bill combines the full annual tax levy for the City of Midland, Delta College, State Education Tax, and part of the annual tax levy for Midland Public Schools, Midland County Operating* and Midland County Educational Service Agency.

Summer tax notices are mailed out the first week of July of each year. If you do not receive a notice by mid-July of each year, please contact the City Treasurer's Office at 989-837-3315.

*Change in State Tax Law (2005): As a result of legislative action by the State of Michigan, the General Property Tax Act has been amended to provide for the following: Beginning in 2005, one third of the County Operating tax levy was billed in summer 2005 with the remaining two-thirds being billed in winter 2005. In 2006, two-thirds of the County Operating tax levy will be billed in the summer, and the remaining one-third, in the winter. From 2007 forward, the entire County Operating tax levy will be billed in the summer.
