Delinquent Tax Payment

We have contracted with Official Payments to take credit card payments both online and in our office for payment of delinquent property taxes. Payments will be linked with our BS&A tax collection software so your account balances will be accurate and up to date.

Online Payments

Visit the BS&A website to make a payment. This website will show you your current amount of delinquent tax due on your parcel. This option will accept partial payments or payment in full on any parcels.

Please note you may need to turn off pop-up blockers prior to making payment. To learn more about logging in and making an online payment, view the Online Payment Instructions (PDF).

Automatic Clearing House (ACH) Payments
The County Treasurer's Office now processes ACH payments. If you would like to have a payment direct withdrawn from your account each month until your balance is paid off, complete the ACH Authorization Form (PDF) and return to our office at:
400 Boardman Ave
Traverse city, MI 49684

PRE Denial Payments
Effective November 15, 2014, the BS&A website will show you if there has been a PRE denial on a parcel. You will not be able to pay the PRE amount due online, but it will give you a balance due so you can mail or bring in your payment.

Other Payment Options

Along with credit card payments we will also be accepting debit cards and e-checks. We are hoping to increase your payment options and ease of payment. If there is any other way we can be of service please let us know.

At this time we can only accept payments for delinquent property taxes. Personal property taxes and current year taxes are still payable at your local city, township, or village.

Balance Inquiries

We now accept email requests for delinquent tax balances by email. If you are not the owner of the parcel, there will be $1 charge per parcel. A cumulative bill will be processed by our Finance Department at the end of each month. When making the request for the first time, be sure to provide the address you would like your bill to be sent to.
