At the October 13, 2021 meeting, our auditors presented an overview of our recent audit of our financial records from FY 20/21. You can read the full report by clicking here.

The Township is in excellent financial health and the Board will continue to monitor revenue and expenditures throughout the year.

Just a reminder, the last day to pay your summer property tax bill without interest is September 14. The
office will be open from 9am – 5pm. Payments must be received in the office or paid online by 5pm.
After 5pm, 1% interest will be added.

To defer your Summer taxes, you must either own eligible farmland or your gross income must be less
than $40,000 and meet one of the following criteria: 62 years of age; Paraplegic, hemiplegic or
quadriplegic; blind; permanently disabled; or eligible serviceperson. To avoid penalty, deferred taxes
must be paid by February 14 by 5 pm. Please click here for the application.

Taxes may be paid by:

  • Mail - postmarks cannot be accepted as payment date. (Make check payable to Williamstown Township)
  • Drop slot by the front door at the Township Hall or white drop box along the north driveway.
  • Online credit card payment; click this link (there is a 3% fee for this service).
  • Electronic check, click here (there is a $3 fee for under $10,000; $10 for anything over).
  • Independent Bank at the corner of Grand River and Zimmer Rds. (You must have your payment stub with you.)
  • In person at the Township office with cash, check or credit card. (Masks must be worn.) When paying with cash, please have correct change.

Remember to indicate on your tax stub if you would like a receipt sent to you. Please include your email address if you would like a receipt by email.

For those paying by check, your taxes are not considered paid until the check clears the bank. Any NSF checks incur a charge of $30 in addition to the taxes still owed.

Taxes still owed on February 14th after 5 pm will incur an additional 3% penalty.

The last day property taxes may be paid at the Township office is February 28th. On March 1st all unpaid bills are turned over to the Ingham County Treasurer for collection. Payments after February 28 should be sent or paid in person at the County Treasurer’s Office at the Mason Courthouse. Please check for current payment amount or call the County Treasurer’s Office at 517-676-7220 for the exact amount owed.
