Q.  Why didn’t I receive a tax bill?
Sometimes owner address changes aren’t received before tax bills are prepared. Call
(989) 275-5743 to resolve any incorrect information.

Q.  How do I Pay?
We accept cash, personal checks and money orders. Credit cards are accepted online through the link on the Treasurer’s page. I also accept partial payments and postmarked payments. Payments for village taxes can be paid at Village Hall at 214 S. Main St. Roscommon.

Q.  I no longer own the property, why am I still getting the bill? or I now own this property, why is the previous owners name on the bill?
Ownership changes are recorded with the County Register of Deeds and then the
assessor receives copies of those deeds for her records. The assessor then gives
those changes to the treasurer. The treasurer only receives these updates a few
times a year when tax bills are printed and mailed. Please call the assessor, Chris
Verlac, at (989) 275-8112 to make any needed corrections.

Q.  What if I think I already paid?
If you have a cancelled check or receipt showing your payment, please call me
immediately. Sometimes taxpayers overlook a summer or winter bill, or don’t realize
they have paid late and incurred penalties.

Q.  Why did I receive a tax bill when my taxes should be escrowed?
If your tax bill does not say “copy” on it, please contact your mortgage company to
resolve the situation. If you are having issues with your mortgage company we
recommend that taxpayers contact the Village Treasurer to make sure that tax                                                                                                                                     payments have been made by the lender.

Q.  When do taxes become delinquent?
Unpaid property taxes go delinquent to the County Treasurer on March 1st, and
additional penalties and fees are added. All questions and payments from then on must
be handled by the County Treasurer’s office. Call the County
Treasurer’s office at (989) 275-5823 for more information.

Q.  What happens if I don’t pay my businesses “personal property” taxes?
Unpaid personal property taxes will result in a loss of that personal property to the local
unit of governement.
