Some Eaton County residents can delay property tax payments

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Some seniors and people with disabilities, veterans and other residents will be able to delay paying 2023 property taxes until April 30, 2025.

The Eaton County Commission approved the delay by resolution on Jan. 2.  The resolution cites Michigan’s General Property Tax Act and defines who qualifies for a delay.

Any resident who is a “senior citizen, paraplegic, hemiplegic, quadriplegic, eligible serviceman, eligible veteran, eligible widow, totally and permanently disabled person, or blind person” can file paperwork with the Eaton County Treasurer’s Office to defer the payments.

Dimondale Democrat Jacob Toomey helped push the resolution through the Commission.

“I believe in bipartisan efforts that put the community first and protect our older residents,” Toomey tells 6 News in an emailed statement. “This policy ensures our fixed-income senior citizens have financial peace of mind and extra flexibility during tax season.”
