Tax Payment Options

Property tax payment can be made on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Treasurer's office (21131 Gardenlane, Ferndale, Michigan, 48220, office #205, located on the 2nd floor of Grant Elementary School).  

Payment can be made in cash or with a check or money order. Tax payments can also be made by credit or debit card.  Credit/debit card processing fees do apply.

For after-hours payment of tax bills, a “drop box” is available outside of the door of the Treasurer’s Office. Payments placed in the “drop box” must be in the form of a check or money order. Please do not make drop box payments in cash.

The drop box will be checked at the close of each business day. Payments received after 5:00 p.m. will be credited for the next business day. Tax payments must be received in the Township Treasurer’s office on or before the last tax collection day. Any payment put in the “drop box” after the due date, will be considered late and reported delinquent. A paid receipt will be mailed for payments put in the drop box.

Online Payments

Property taxes can also be paid by credit card, debit card and electronic check, online at and by phone at 248-858-0025.
