August 30, 2018 – Summer tax payments are due and payable without penalty or interest, through September 17, 2018, to the City of Midland Treasurer’s Office, 333 W. Ellsworth St. A four percent (4%) penalty is assessed to payments or unpaid balances after September 17 as specified by Michigan law and City of Midland resolution.
Property owners may pay summer tax bills by check or cash at the City Treasurer’s Office. Credit cards are not accepted. If you are signed up for the City’s Auto-Pay service, your taxes will be automatically withdrawn from your chosen bank account on September 17, 2018. After-hours payments may be placed in the depository located in the main entrance of Midland City Hall. Residents who have not received a summer tax bill should contact the City Treasurer's Office at 989-837-3315.
The summer tax notice combines the full annual tax levy for the City of Midland, Delta College, Midland County Operating, State Education Tax, and part of the annual tax levy for Midland Public Schools and Midland County Educational Service Agency. The total summer millage rate on principal residence property in the City of Midland within the Midland Public School District is 31.6145 mills; the total on non-principal residence real property is 39.7745 mills.
A one percent (1%) tax administration fee will be imposed on all applicable summer and winter taxes. Authorized by State law, this fee offsets costs incurred by the City in assessing property values, collecting property tax levies, and coordinating the assessment review and appeal process. The administration fee is calculated on the base tax.
