The Redford Township Tax Department generates tax bills twice a year for over 24,000 customers. The Tax Department is staffed with one account clerk along with the Deputy Treasurer. Summer tax bills are mailed on the 1st week of July with a due date of 9/14. Winter tax bills are mailed on the 1st week of December with a due date of 2/14. The Township Board may vote to extend the winter tax due date through 2/28 without additional penalties. There is no guarantee the due date will be extended. To determine if it was extended, this page will be updated with that information. Property tax payments can only be accepted from July 1st through February 28th of the following year. Any delinquencies are transferred to the Wayne County Treasurer in March every year. Payment must then be made payable to the Wayne County Treasurer and directed to them. Wayne County does add additional penalties and interest when they receive delinquent tax bills. To contact Wayne County, please call 313-224-5990.
For questions regarding your tax bill call 313-387-2611 or 313-387-2746. If you have questions regarding the Taxable Value of your home and want to discuss how the value was determined, please contact the Assessor's Office at 313-387-2730 or view the Assessor's page.
Tax Bill Policy
When making a payment on your taxes, you must have the original bill. Title companies, tax servicing, and management companies as well as third parties, must submit the original tax bill with payment. Payments without an original bill are subject to a duplicate bill fee of $5 per parcel, per tax season. Online printouts from BS&A, screenshots, or photos of tax bills are not considered original bills and will not be accepted in place of the original bill. Payments without the additional fee will be returned to the customer without the payment being processed. Landlords who are not receiving bills at their current address are encouraged to contact the Assessor's Office at 313-387-2730 to update their mailing address.
How to Find the Amount Paid in Taxes
Redford Township recommends that taxpayers retain the top portion of their tax bill in order to report the amount of taxes paid on their income tax return. Customers who have an escrow account with their mortgage company receive informational copies of their tax bills for this purpose.
If you are unable to locate your copies, Redford Township maintains 10 years' worth of tax information on our website that is accessible for free by visiting the BSA Online website. Please note for more detailed information, be sure to click on the triangle to the left of the tax year. This will provide you with a breakdown of all the millage amounts, and any special assessments along with the taxable value and SEV of your property. Residents can also get a copy of this same information at the Public Services Building where property tax payments are accepted. There is a small charge of $1 per tax year for printing this information.
The Tax Department no longer holds any outside special assessments. For payoff amounts on sidewalk assessments, violations, grass cutting, tickets, or nuisance abatement invoices, email the Building Department or call 313-387-2680. You may also email Central Maintenance for additional information.
Bring the original tax bill to the Leo Snage Public Services Building located at 12200 Beech Daly. Normal office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Township offices are closed for most national holidays.
Payments can be mailed with a check or money order. Return envelopes are provided with the tax bills. If you do not have the return envelope, payments should be mailed to:

The drop box at the Public Services Building is attached to the corner of the building. The Town Hall drop box is freestanding and is located on the sidewalk behind the building.
