Tax Bills

Tax Bills

The summer tax bill is posted per City Charter the second Monday in May each year. Summer taxes not paid by June 30th are assessed a 5% penalty and applied to the winter bill.

Winter bills are sent out at the beginning of December and are due February 14. A penalty is assessed against unpaid taxes and they are turned over to the Monroe County Treasurer in March. The City of Monroe cannot accept property tax payments after the delinquent property tax has been turned over to the County.

Property taxes and water bills may be paid online via the link below for an additional fee.

Property Tax Deferment

Some property owners may be eligible for a tax deferment under Michigan State Law. An owner must complete a deferment application by September 15th . A deferment permits property taxes to be paid at a later date without any additional penalty and interest as long as the new payment date is met.


Unpaid Taxes

Property taxes that are unpaid are turned over to the Monroe County Treasurer for collection with additional penalties and interest as of mid-March each year. For payment information, call the county treasurer at 734.240.7365.
