Qualified taxpayers may claim a deferment upon filing an application form with the Township Treasurer. This deferment must be filed by September 15th each year. Summer and winter taxes would then become due and payable without penalty or interest until February 14th of the following year. The application can be picked up at the Bangor Township Treasurer’s Office or you can fill out and print the following form.
The Michigan General Property Tax Act has been amended with Public Act 24 of 2005 to allow certain citizens, including senior citizens, veterans and persons with disabilities, to defer their summer property taxes if they have a household income below $40,000.
To qualify for the deferment under the new qualifying income limit, a township resident must meet one or more of the following conditions as defined by the State Income Tax Act:
Is a totally and permanently disabled person, blind person, paraplegic, hemiplegic, quadriplegic, eligible service person, eligible veteran, or eligible widow or widower.
Is 62 years of age or older, including the unmarried surviving spouse of a person who was 62 years of age or older at the time of death.
