The City Assessor annually reviews the City's property tax rolls to determine tax rates within the community. These rates are based on voter approved special purpose millages (ex. Street Bond, Water Bond) as well as general government operating millages (ex. Schools, City, County). Once tax rates have been determined, the City Clerk/Treasurer is responsible for administering real and personal property tax collections. Late payments are processed by the Shiawassee County Clerk's Office. Current and historical tax rates and payment information are available through BS&A Online.
Only select taxes are actually captured by the City of Durand. Those with an asterisk (*) below are collected by the City and are either directly distributed to external entities for services provided (Ambulance, SATA), used exclusively to pay for a voter approved special project (Water Bond, Street Bond), or used to support the City's general operating fund. The "City Tax" is the primary source of revenue for all city services including police, fire, building and facility maintenance, parks and recreation, code enforcement, planning and zoning, economic development, community development, and general administration.
The 2012 Water Bond is set to expire in 2019. All other taxes are distributed to the respective agencies that administer those programs or services.
