PROPERTY TAX BILLS
Property Tax Bills are mailed twice each year. The state education tax and the general county tax are included on the summer tax bill sent out on July 1. Summer taxes must be paid by September 14 in order to avoid any interest. Winter property taxes which include township, local school and special county taxes are sent out on December 1. Winter taxes must be paid by February 14 to avoid any interest or penalty. All taxes can be paid at the township through the the last day of February. Beginning March 1, all unpaid taxes are considered delinquent and must be paid to the Lapeer County treasurer.

Taxes can be paid with cash, check, credit/debit card, or electronic check. Payment will be recorded on the date received. Please make checks payable to Hadley Township. Write your telephone number and your property I.D. number on your check. Checks are accepted only as a conditional payment.
