New-Look Summer Tax Notices to Hit Mailboxes in July

June 15, 2020 – Property owners in the City of Midland will see a new format for their property tax bills when notices hit mailboxes next month.

Beginning with Summer 2020, all City of Midland tax bills will now be printed on a bright orange, double-sided postcard that includes the City’s logo. The cards will feature two perforated areas that can be detached: one portion to be submitted with the tax bill, while the other can be used to submit address changes to the City Assessor’s Office. All personal information is contained only on the interior, sealed portion of the card.

The format change is estimated to save the City $6,500 annually in mailing costs.

 Summer taxes are due and payable without penalty or interest from July 1 through September 15, 2020.  Property owners who do not receive a summer tax notice by July 15 should contact the Midland 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 31.7138 mills; the total on non-principal residence real property is 39.8895 mills.

A one percent (1%) tax administration fee will be imposed on all applicable summer and winter taxes. This fee is authorized by State law to offset costs incurred by the City in assessing property values, collecting property tax levies, and in the assessment review and appeal process. The tax administration fee is calculated on the base tax.

A taxpayer who is 62 years of age or older; or a totally and permanently disabled person, blind person, paraplegic, quadriplegic, eligible serviceperson, eligible veteran, eligible widow or widower; and who has a household income under $40,000 may request an “Application for Deferment of Summer Taxes” from the City Treasurer’s Office. This application defers the summer tax penalty on the applicant’s principal residence until February 15, 2020. Deferment applications must be received in the Treasurer’s Office by September 16, 2019 in order to be eligible for this deferment. After September 16, 2019, a four percent (4%) penalty is applied to the unpaid balance of the Summer 2020 property taxes. 

Citizens can pay a City property tax bill automatically from their bank accounts using an easy and convenient program called Auto-Pay. For additional information and enrollment forms, visit the www.cityofmidlandmi.gov or call the Treasurer’s Office.

Property owners may also pay tax bills by check or cash at the Midland City Treasurer’s Office, 333 W. Ellsworth from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  After hours payments may be placed in the depository located in the main entrance of Midland City Hall. Tax billing information is also available on the City of Midland website at http://www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/treasurer
