Berrien County Partner with Area Financial

Institutions to Launch Tax Savings Account Program

 

Five Berrien County, Michigan financial institutions introduced new savings accounts this week to help residents save for their property taxes.

 

Berrien County Treasurer Bret Witkowski approached the local banks and credit unions about the concept of creating a tax savings account.  Witkowski said the accounts will help property owners save for their property tax bills.

 

“When residents are able to pay their property taxes on time, taxpayers end up saving hundreds of thousand dollars per year,” said Witkowski

 

Witkowski said the number of people who become delinquent on their property taxes has increased since the great recession” Even though our economy has improved, the number of people still delinquent remains just over 10%, Witkowski said.

 

The new Tax Savings Account is available at Edgewater, United Federal Credit Union, New Buffalo Savings, Honor Credit Union and 1st Source Bank

Notice From the Berrien County Treasurer’s Office, Saint Joseph MI.

 

                     SAVE YOUR HOME

 

Having troubles?  Lost your job?  Decrease in income? Worried about losing your home?

 

Bret Witkowski, Berrien County Treasurer and his staff have the answer.  The County Treasurer offers, to qualified property owners, a monthly payment plan for delinquent taxes.    Mr. Witkowski will calculate the amount past due, find an affordable amount to get your property up to date the best way possible.

 

A monthly installment agreement shall be agreed upon and signed both by the Treasurer and property owner. Each month an amount is expected due and paid monthly.  If possible a monthly payment plan can be processed on delinquent taxes while the taxpayer continues to keep up on current taxes.

 

Along with this service, Michigan State University Extension has assistance with the Housing Development Authority.  Mr. Witkowski would be able to assist you with those qualifications as well.

 

Bret’s direct line to call is 982-8645 to set this up.
