The Treasury Division collects and records all taxes and monies received by the City, and property taxes received on behalf of Wayne County and the Detroit Public School System; acts as the custodian of all funds and other assets belonging to the City; disburses all funds as authorized by the City Chief Financial Officer/Finance Director.

Effective March 1, 2004 Michigan Public Act 246 of 2003 requires that all current Wayne County taxes be billed by the City in December. Also it requires that all delinquent City of Detroit real property taxes be transferred to the Wayne County Treasurer on March 1 for collection. To avoid this action, please pay your property taxes on time.
