Tax Cycle Information

Each tax cycle begins July 1 and concludes on the last day in February. Exception: If the last day of February falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the last day for collection moves to the next business day.

The summer tax lien is July 1 and payable through September 14 without interest. From September 15th to September 30th a 1% late fee will be assessed. An additional 1% will be assessed the first of each month thereafter through the end of February.

Winter tax lien is December 1 and payable through the end of the tax cycle without interest.

As of March 1, unpaid taxes are considered delinquent (with the *Exception noted above) and must be paid to the Macomb County Treasurer's Office. The County Treasurer's Office is located in the Macomb County Administration Building at One South Main in Mount Clemens. Clinton Township does not have records of payments made to the Macomb County Treasurer for delinquent taxes. You must contact the Macomb County Treasurer 586-469-5190 to determine to pay off amounts for delinquent taxes or to verify if delinquent taxes have been paid. You can also obtain delinquent property tax information on the County website.

Tax Bills

Tax bills should be received the first week in July and the first week of December. If you do not receive a tax bill at these times, please call the Treasurer's Office at 586-286-9313. Failure to receive a tax bill does not waive responsibility for making payment by the due date.
