Property Tax (Deadline) Alert!

JEI Housing & Neighborhood Services, in conjunction with the Wayne County Treasurer’s Office & City of Detroit Assessor’s Office, inform you of a Property Tax Alert!

Homeowners who currently owe 2016 or prior years property taxes may have until JUNE 30th to get on a payment plan such as IRSPA (Interest Reduction Stipulated Payment Agreement) that reduces the interest rate from 18% to 6%.

If you need assistance, we encourage you to contact our office at 313-331-7939, ext. 1 to speak with a counselor. We also assist with Step Forward applications and can connect you with partner agencies to assist renters and homeowners who may have more extensive needs.

The mission of JEI’s Housing & Neighborhood Support Services team is to keep Detroiters in their homes.

Have you applied for the 2019 Property Tax Exemption (PTE)?

This program may reduce or eliminate your current year’s property taxes.

If not, contact our Financial Opportunity Coordinator, Jacqueline Richmond, to make an appointment at 313-314-2706 or by email at for assistance. Drop by for monthly PTE application assistance every 2nd Wednesday, monthly, at our office located at 1018 Chalmers, Detroit, MI 48215 from 11:00am to 6:00pm.

Last Day to submit PTE applications for current tax year 2019 is December 9th, 2019
