Summer Tax

The Walled Lake and Huron Valley School Districts have contracted with Commerce Township to act as their agent for the collection of the summer taxes. The summer tax bill also represents 100% collection of the taxes for Oakland Intermediate schools, the Oakland Community College, and Oakland County Operating tax. The taxes levied by Commerce Township, Oakland County Parks & Recreation, Zoo Authority, Art Institute Authority, and Huron Clinton Metropolitan Authority will be billed in December.

Should you have any questions regarding your school tax portion of your tax bill call:

Teri Les – Walled Lake Schools (248) 956-2008
Glenna MacDonald – Huron Valley Schools (248) 684-8226

Summer taxes are payable July 1st through September 14th without penalty or interest. Beginning September 15, a 1% per month interest penalty will be added on the 15th day of each month. Beginning February 15 th, an additional 3% penalty will be added to the summer tax bill. Failure to receive a tax bill does not waive interest or penalty charges.
