SAVE YOUR HOME
Having troubles? Lost your job? Decrease in income? Worried about losing your home?
Bret Witkowski, Berrien County Treasurer and his staff have the answer. The County Treasurer offers, to qualified property owners, a monthly payment plan for delinquent taxes. Mr. Witkowski will calculate the amount past due, find an affordable amount to get your property up to date the best way possible.
A monthly installment agreement shall be agreed upon and signed both by the Treasurer and property owner. Each month an amount is expected due and paid monthly. If possible a monthly payment plan can be processed on delinquent taxes while the taxpayer continues to keep up on current taxes.
Along with this service, Michigan State University Extension has assistance with the Housing Development Authority. Mr. Witkowski would be able to assist you with those qualifications as well.
Bret’s direct line to call is 982-8645 to set this up.
