City of Saginaw MI -
Property Taxes

The City of Saginaw bills property taxes twice a year. July 1st and December 1st.

The July (summer) (City bill) bill is due on/or before July 31st . If the 31st falls on a Saturday or Sunday, then the due date would be the next business day. On August 1st penalty and interest are added.

Following is the penalty and interest schedule:

  • August: 1/2% Interest & 1/2% Penalty
  • September: 1 1/2%
  • October: 2%
  • November: 2 1/2%
  • December: 3%
  • January: 3 1/2%
  • February: 4%

The penalty and interest are figured on the unpaid balance. The July bill can be paid in the Treasurer's Office at Saginaw City Hall until February 28th . On March 1st any unpaid taxes are transferred to the Saginaw County Treasurer, 111 South Michigan Avenue, Saginaw, MI 48602 (989) 790-5225.

The December (winter) (County) bill is mailed December 1st and is due on/or before February 14th. If the 14th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, then the due date is the next business day. On February 15th a penalty is added to the unpaid bills. The penalty is a flat 4% fee, less the administrative fee. The City of Saginaw charges a 1% administration fee for billing the collecting of the winter bills.

Example:

December tax bill $125.95
Admin Fee $1.26
total winter bill $127.21
Penalty 4% 5.04 (125.95 x 4%)

To figure the penalty you would take the December tax bill of $125.95 and multiply by 4%. You do not include the administration fee in your calculation. Your total winter bill with penalty would be $132.25. ($125.95 + 1.26 + 5.04)

The December property tax payments can be paid in the Treasurer's Office at Saginaw City Hall until February 28th. On March 1st any unpaid taxes are transferred to the Saginaw County Treasurer, 111 South Michigan Avenue, Saginaw, MI 48602 (989) 790-5225.
