Financial Hardship Extension Process
Financial Hardship Extensions delay the foreclosure deadline up to one year for homeowners who are actively working to catch up their forfeited property taxes. Homeowners will be required to set up a payment plan. The "granting" of a financial hardship extension ONLY extends the time to pay the forfeited tax year. Monthly interest of 1.5%, fees and/or penalties will continue to accrue during the deferral period, increasing the overall tax liability. Once the application and required documentation is submitted, we will contact the owner to arrange an appointment.
Financial Hardship Extension Application Packet
Please review our Financial Hardship Extension Policy for eligibility.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued an Executive Order in March extending the property tax payment deadline to Monday, June 19, making the new due date to avoid foreclosure Monday, July 20. If individual homeowners do not have the 2017 tax year paid in full by July 20, 2020, the property will foreclose on Tuesday, July 21, 2020.
There is an accessible COVID-19 Hardship Extension Application available. Please use this fillable PDF to complete your Hardship Extension regarding 2017 property tax payment.
