*NEW IN 2021 – VILLAGE TAXES TO BE PAID THROUGH PUTNAM TOWNSHIP*
The village has entered into an agreement for Putnam Township to bill and collect village taxes. You will be able to pay your village and your summer township taxes with one payment, at one time, to one entity!
The township will be sending the combined tax bills and they will be sent starting July 1. The bill will be a combination of your village and your township tax bill, with each tax clearly indicated. You can pay by check – in person at township hall or via mail. There are also several online and automatic payment options, and those can be found on the Putnam Township Treasurer page.
To pay your taxes directly online, click here. You will be directed to the BS&A website, the firm that handles the village and township tax database.
Questions can be directed to Putnam Township Deputy Treasurer Tracy Taylor at 734-878-3131 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
