Payments received February 15 through February 28 will receive a four percent penalty applied to the remaining balance.

 

On March 1, the City turns delinquent real and special property taxes over to the Midland County Treasurer.  The County Treasurer then assesses a four percent administration fee plus one percent interest for each month of delinquency thereafter.
