Oakland County Treasurer’s Office Works to Prevent Property Tax Foreclosures

Oakland County residential and commercial property owners are encouraged to pay their delinquent property taxes in full for 2020 and previous years by March 31, 2023. If you or someone you know cannot pay in full, please contact the Oakland County Treasurer’s Office to schedule a Taxpayer Assistance Meeting before the deadline.

With the recent inflationary increases in housing, utilities, groceries and interest rates, Oakland County residents and business owners may experience financial difficulties, potentially subjecting them to property tax foreclosure.

A residential or commercial property tax foreclosure can have harmful effects on our neighborhoods and local economy. That’s why Oakland County Treasurer Robert Wittenberg and his staff work diligently throughout the year to help residents and business owners retain their property rights.

“Our residents and businesses are the driving force that makes Oakland County a great place to live, work and play,” said Oakland County Treasurer Robert Wittenberg. ”We must prevent property tax foreclosure for our residents and businesses to ensure our communities continue thriving.”

During the 30-minute, confidential phone meeting, a deputy treasurer will advise property owners and check for eligibility for an affordable repayment schedule or refer them to additional programs and services. Since December 2022, the Treasurer’s Office has held nearly 1,000 Taxpayer Assistance Meetings and negotiated repayment plans.
