Treasury Information and Millage Rates

Dear Property Owner: 

Howell Township’s summer taxes are statutorily due on September 14th and winter taxes are due on February 14th by 5:00 p.m.  We do not accept postmarks.  Howell Township is open 8-5 Monday-Thursday, closed Friday and all federal holidays.  Please visit the Township's homepage for days the Township Hall will be closed around the holidays.  You can pay your taxes by mail, at the Township Hall, or through our website:

           -  follow the link PAY ONLINE.
                    Please be aware processing fees apply to all online payments that go to the processing company. 
                    Howell Township does not accept ECHECK payments through our website.

Failure to receive a tax bill does not waive interest, penalties, or administration fees (MCL 211.44). 
The legal responsibility of paying taxes on the correct parcel of property rests with the taxpayer. The Treasurer is not responsible for payments made to the wrong parcels. Please include property ID numbers with all payments.

Tax bills paid through your online banking system may take 15 to 20 business days to be received by the Township since they are processed by a third-party vendor.  If an escrow company has requested your tax bill it will be indicated on your tax bill after the phrase, “This escrow company requested your bill”:  Please be aware that your mortgage company most likely uses a separate escrow company.

Cash and Check Information:
CASH - It is not always possible to break large bills, as the office keeps minimal change on hand for security reasons. Please pay with small denomination bills or with exact change.
CHECKS - Make checks payable to "Howell Township Treasurer." Include your current telephone number and parcel ID number of the property (i.e. 4706-xx-xxx-xxx) on your check.  Please do not round up check to next dollar amount.
DROP BOX - For your convenience, the Township has a drop box located at the front of the Township Hall by the main entrance. Please use only checks or money orders when using the drop box. Any payments left after 5:00 p.m. will be processed on the next business day.
PARTIAL PAYMENTS - The Treasurer accepts partial payments for taxes.
RECEIPTS - Receipts are given upon request.

If you have any questions regarding your tax bill please let us know.
