The 2022 winter tax bills for the City of Portage are due by 5 PM on Tuesday, February 14, 2023.
Property owners who have not received their winter tax bill or have questions may contact the Portage Treasury Office (269) 329-4455. Property tax information is also available at portagemi.gov/154. Property tax information is updated daily. Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the property owner of the responsibility for payment of the tax and applicable fees.
MAIL to City of Portage, 7900 South Westnedge Avenue, Portage, MI 49002. Please include your payment and the bottom portion of your tax statement. To avoid the 3% late fee, mailed payments must be postmarked by the U.S. Post Oﬃce on or before February 14, 2023, and received by the city no later than February 21, 2023. For payments mailed on or a few days before February 14, the Portage Treasury office strongly recommends hand-delivering the payment to the Post oﬃce and witnessing the clerk put the postmark on the envelope. In all late-payment disputes, the Portage Treasury Oﬃce will rely on the postmark applied by the Postmaster (metered postmarks are not accepted).
