Please take note* if you are paying your property taxes past the due date; any interest or penalty incurred will be paid to the township in addition to the fees that Point & Pay will be administering if you use their service.

Depending on the volume of daily mail, the treasurer is usually in office throughout the week to handle collections and post payments. If you would like to pay taxes in person, please call and set up an appointment.

Multiple parcels (in same season) can be paid with one check, but please do not combine your Winter & Summer Taxes in one check.

Mortgage Escrows: Tax information will be forwarded to your bank, per their request. Property owners receive an original bill, mortgage companies receive a copy.

Receipts are provided upon request only. To request a receipt, there are several options: simply make a note on your payment stub, go to and print your bills and receipts, e-mail request to: or call 231-536-2900.

Postmarks are NOT accepted by South Arm Township as on time payment. Please be sure to allow time for delivery of your payment. Unfortunately, your mail no longer comes direct to East Jordan. All mail goes through Traverse City first, which results in late payments, so please send your payment in before the due date allowing at least 5 days for delivery.

Address corrections: Please update as soon as possible to avoid a delay in receiving your tax bill. Contact Charlevoix County Dept. of Equalization to update @ 1-231-547-7230.

Board of Review (BOR) Corrections: Corrections for the current billing year (July & Dec.) will be made within a week of the Board of Review meetings that are held in July & Dec. If you know you are on the docket, please refrain from paying your tax bill until the BOR meets. This will expedite the process of change without delay and unnecessary refunds. Prior year BOR corrections are handled by the Charlevoix County Treasurer’s office; contact their office for inquiries at 231/547-7202.
