Property Tax Payments
The Walker Treasurer’s office is open to the public between 7:30am and 5:00pm every Monday through Thursday and between 7:30am and 11:30am every Friday, excluding holidays. The city also has a drop box available for after hours payments. The green city drop box is located next to the two blue U.S. Postal Service boxes in the parking lot outside of city hall.
Property tax payments are due in our office by 5:00pm on the bill’s due date. Payments received after the bill’s due date are subject to late fees. If you choose to mail your payment, please allow ample time for postal delivery.
POSTMARKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED AS DATE OF PAYMENT.
The city will accept partial payments towards a property tax bill.
Property Tax Payment Options
The City of Walker accepts the payment forms of cash, personal or business checks, bank cashier checks, money orders and credit/debit cards. If you issue a check using your bank’s online bill payment system, please use your property’s parcel number as the account number in order that we may properly identify and apply your payment.
Credit or Debit Card Payments
Payment for current year property taxes may be made using a credit or debit card. These payments are processed for the City of Walker by a third party company named Government Payment Services Inc. Please be advised that Government Payment Services will charge you a non-refundable convenience fee for your transaction.
Between the dates of March 2, 2021 and July 1, 2021, the City of Walker will not be able to accept credit or debit card property tax payments on real property because unpaid real property tax bills have been turned over to the Kent County Treasurer as required by State of Michigan property tax law. Please direct these payments to the Kent County Treasurer (phone 616.632.7500). Thank you.
