Taxes and Assessments

The Village of Friendliness – Since 1870

The Treasurer is responsible for all deposits, investments and billing, collection and disbursement of property taxes, and budgeting. Property tax bills are mailed to property owners twice a year. Taxes are calculated on the Taxable Value of the property. The summer billing is mailed the first week of July and is due by September 14th. The winter billing is mailed the first week of December and is due by February 14th. After March 1st of each year all uncollected real property taxes are turned over to the Allegan County Treasurer for collection. Millage rates are set by each of the taxing authorities. The taxing authorities then direct the City how much to collect and when to collect it. The City of the Village of Douglas bills, collects and disburses taxes for Saugatuck Public Schools, Allegan County, Ottawa Area Intermediate School District, Interurban Transit Authority, Saugatuck Douglas District Library, Saugatuck Township Fire District, State of Michigan, and of course the City of the Village of Douglas.
