Wayne County hosts Taxpayer Assistance Saturdays
DETROIT — This year, 42,000 properties in Wayne County face tax foreclosure. Wayne County Treasurer Ray Wojtowicz has created programs to help residents avoid tax foreclosure. In February the treasurer’s office and Wayne County Community College District (WCCCD) will host Taxpayer Assistance Saturdays. Each Saturday the treasurer’s office will have representatives at four WCCCD campuses to meet with taxpayers and explain assistance options that may help avoid foreclosure proceedings.
The dates are:
- Feb. 9: Eastern Campus
- Feb. 16: Downtown Campus
- Feb. 23: Northwest Campus
Each session will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Any resident owing 2012 and prior year taxes is encouraged to attend a Taxpayer Assistance Saturday. Residents must bring their property’s parcel number and owner identification. For those who can pay their back taxes, the treasurer’s office will accept money orders and cashier’s check onsite made payable to the Wayne County Treasurer.
If unable to attend a Taxpayer Assistance Saturday, you may qualify for one of the other programs offered by the treasurer’s office.
