    2016 Property Tax bills will not be consolidated.  Property owners should expect to receive both a 2016 Summer and 2016 Winter property tax bill. 

       Click here for information on consolidating winter tax bills of $100 or less so amount is billed with the Summer tax bill.  Public Act 184 of 2012 allowed for consolidation in July, 2013.  This will not occur in 2016 due to a Kent County ballot proposal to collect a county wide tax for the public museum and zoo.  The ballot proposal is scheduled for the November 2016 election cycle, which if passed, the Museum/Zoo tax would be billed on the 2016 Winter tax bill.  For this reason, the City will not consolidate property tax bills.
