The last date to make a payment was February 29th. If you still owe taxes, you will need to contact the County Treasurer. The only exceptions are personal property bills (that have 500-515 in the middle of the parcel number, example: 14-130-5**-***-**)

We cannot accept any real property tax payments after February 29th. If you have an exception you need to call the Treasurer at 269-424-3025 x1 on a Tues or Thursday between 10am-4pm. Our online payment system has been disabled so that people pay to the appropriate office. It will be turned back on for Summer Tax payments.


If you have not paid your property tax bill, it is now delinquent and you should call the Cass County Treasurer’s office for your new balance. There is additional interest and penalty to be paid. You may reach them at 269-445-4468, or pay online
