Property Tax Collection Information
Summer taxes are due September 14th. Winter taxes are due by February 28th. Winter Personal Property Statements are due February 14th. Make checks payable to Mason Township. We prefer checks or money orders; not cash. Mail them, drop them off in the front porch mailbox, or come during the specific Saturday hours. Your tax bill shows the place, dates and times to pay in person.
Our hours are every other Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and on the deadline date, our hours are 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. We are also available evenings or other weekends by appointment.
The Treasurer collects the taxes at her home. (See your tax bill.) No taxes are collected at the Township Hall. Credit cards are not accepted. Credit card fees would exceed the amount the Township retains. We will come out to your vehicle if you wish. Honk to let us know you are there and give us a little time; we may be on the phone or with another taxpayer.
After September 14th, Summer taxes become delinquent and interest is added. Delinquent Summer taxes are paid to the Township Treasurer until February 28th. They are then turned over to the Cass County Treasurer for collection with the interest and a penalty added.
We do accept partial payments. Any balance owing on February 28th will be turned over to Cass County for collection.

MASON TOWNSHIP CANNOT TAKE YOUR TAX PAYMENTS AFTER FEBRUARY 28TH except for the few delinquent Personal Property Taxes the township must collect. We only have ten days after the deadline to settle up with Cass County.
