The Tax Bill The Macomb Township tax bill is a single sheet with a perforated portion on the bottom, that must be returned with payment, and a return envelope. Residents that have an escrow account with their mortgage company will receive a bill that states “Information Only – Retain for Tax Purposes” and will not contain a return envelope. Failure to receive your tax bill does not waive interest or penalty. To view an example of a winter tax bill click here. The summer tax bill will be colored purple.
