When are my taxes due?

Summer property taxes are due to the City by July 31st.  Winter property taxes are due to the City by February 14th.  Please verify the due date on your current tax statement, as the City of Royal Oak does not accept postmarks as proof of payment date.

There is a 24-hour drop box located near the front entrance of Royal Oak City Hall, located at 203 S Troy Street and another drop box n front of the employee ramp next to the Farmers' Market.  Drop box payments received before 8 a.m. are processed with the previous days' work (example: payments pulled from the drop box on Monday morning are processed as received the prior Friday).  All unpaid taxes on March 1st are payable to Oakland County.
