Lenawee County has more time to pay past-due 2017 taxes

Lenawee County – 3 27 20 Press Release 17 L

ADRIAN — Lenawee County residents have more time to get caught up on their 2017 taxes and prevent their home from foreclosing after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued an executive order extending the property tax foreclosure deadline to May 29, 2020.

“With this order Lenawee County residents don’t have to worry about having their homes foreclosed on March 31st. This will give them more time, but the interest will still be increasing so don’t just put it off,” said Lenawee County Treasurer Marilyn Woods.

The treasurer’s office, along with other county departments closed on March 19 and will remain closed through April 13. Because the governor has ordered a temporary requirement to suspend activities not necessary to sustain life, the office will only take calls Tuesday and Wednesday of each week 8 a.m.-noon/1-4:30 p,m, at (517)-264- 4554.

Residents who still need to make property tax payments to avoid going into foreclosure may: (1) make payments online at www.lenawee.mi.us; (2) mail in their payment; or (3) use our secure drop box located outside the Annex Building, which is located at 113 W. Front Street, Adrian.
