Your Property Taxes

Township residents often question where tax dollars are spent. (Please refer to the pie chart.) As you can see, most of the taxes collected (61%) go to fund the schools (including the Ottawa Intermediate School District). The two mills for the Fire, Roads, and Drains have been in place since the mid-1960s and are renewed every two years by a vote of the residents. 

Township Operating revenue goes toward wages (other than the fire department), insurance, parks, and cemetery maintenance, building maintenance, utilities, legal fees, and the other expenses associated with running a township. 

Summer taxes are due Sept. 14. Winter taxes are due Feb. 14. Postmarks on envelopes are not valid to determine deadline.  Penalties apply.
