Sue Rice is the Assessor for the Village of Shoreham and Saint Joseph Charter Township. If you need assistance, contact Sue at 269-429-7703 or email her at email@example.com.
All village taxes are paid to the Village of Shoreham at 2120 Brown School Road. The Village of Shoreham has only one tax season.
Property owners are assessed 0.8 mills on the taxable value.
What is the schedule?
Early July : Bill notice sent and village property taxes become due.
Not later than September 14, payment must be received. After 5:00 p.m. on September 14th the payment is considered late.
After September 14, 1% interest for each calendar month will accrue if the payment is late. The taxpayer must include the interest fees.
February 28: Payment must be received by this date or the property tax will be considered delinquent and turned over to the county treasurer on March 1. Additional interest and penalties will apply beginning March 1.
How can I confirm the payment was received?
If paying by check, please check with your bank first to confirm that the check has been cashed. If you escrow your taxes, please check with your mortgage or escrow company. As the taxpayer, you are liable for the tax payment.
What if I did not receive a tax bill – am I still liable for the tax?
Yes. While the collecting treasurer is to send tax bills out to all known taxpayers, if the tax bill is returned due to a bad address or name, as the property owner you are still liable for the tax. Not receiving a tax bill, does not alleviate the tax burden. If you have not received a tax bill or have received late bills, you should check with your local treasurer or assessor to confirm that they have the correct owner name and address for billing purposes.
