A Message from City Treasurer Todd Browning:
April 1, 2022
It has come our attention that some of the 2021 summer and winter non-city property tax millage rates were billed incorrectly.
Checks have been issued which includes the refund related to your summer and/or winter property tax bill. The average refund amount related to the summer property tax bill is $1.73 and the average winter amount is $0.76. Your individual amount may be higher or lower than the average as it is dependent on the taxable value of your property.
Although the amount of the check may seem insignificant, please cash it in order to keep all accounts accurate.
Todd M. Browning

For billing accuracy, it is important that you keep your information current with The City of Wyandotte. Some examples of changes include:
Change of Mortgage Company – contact the Treasurer’s Office 734-324-4570

If you elect to pay property taxes through an escrow account, your property tax bill will be sent directly to your escrow agent.
If you do NOT receive your property tax bill by the 3rd week of August/December and do NOT have an escrow account, please call 734-324-4570 for a duplicate copy.
FAILURE TO RECEIVE YOUR PROPERTY TAX BILL DOES NOT WAIVE PAYMENT REQUIREMENTS OR PENALTY AND INTEREST.
Deferment of Taxes
Deferments are available for senior citizens and legally disabled persons with an annual income of less than $40,000.00. This deferment is for a homeowner’s principle residence only and allows summer taxes to be paid on or before February 14 of the following year without penalty. Qualified persons must complete this form annually, and return to the Treasurer’s Office.
If you pay your own taxes (rather than an escrow agent), a return addressed envelope is provided with your property tax bill. Please utilize this return envelope when paying your current year property taxes to ensure accurate and expedient delivery.
Your property tax bill can also be paid at the following locations:
- City Hall, Treasurer’s Office, 3200 Biddle Avenue, Suite 100. For your convenience, a 24 hour drop box is located outside, near the drive through window at Wyandotte City Hall, 3200 Biddle Avenue, Suite 100, Wyandotte.
- Michigan Legacy Credit Union (members only), 269 Oak Street
- Community Choice Credit Union (members only), 3099 Biddle Avenue
Acceptable forms of payment include cash, check, money order, debit or credit cards. Credit and debit card payments are accepted at City Hall, 3200 Biddle Avenue and at wyandotte.net. There is a convenience fee of no more than 2.55% to customers for payments made with debit or credit cards. The fee is collected and paid to the service provider, not the City of Wyandotte. Payment by electronic check at wyandotte.net will be charged a $1.00 convenience fee. Checks are accepted only as conditional payment. If the check is denied upon presentation to the bank, the tax will be restored as unpaid to the tax roll without further notice and will be subject to all applicable interest and penalty charges.
When you provide a check as payment, you authorize us either to use information from your check to make a one-time electronic funds transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction. When we use information from your check to make an electronic funds transfer, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same day your payment is received, and you will not receive your check back from your financial institution.
Beginning March 1 of every year TAXES ON REAL PROPERTY ONLY for the August and December tax billings can be paid only to Eric R. Sabree, Wayne County Treasurer, The International Center Building, 400 Monroe-5th Floor, Detroit, Michigan 48226, together with penalty and interest charges as well as any Wayne County charges.
