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 3% fee. The City of Saginaw charges a 1% administration fee for the billing and collection of the taxes.Example:
December tax bill $125.95

Penalty 3% $3.78 (125.95 x 3%)
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)
