Residents can now pay overdue Kent County property taxes online
GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Residents can now pay their overdue Kent County property taxes online.
Kent County Treasurer Peter MacGregor on Monday, April 19, announced his office is launching a free mobile app and website where people can search how much they owe in delinquent property taxes and pay them without having to go to the clerk’s office.
“Over the past year we have seen how important it is to give our residents the option of contactless services,” MacGregor said. “This new electronic service will allow residents to view and pay their delinquent taxes from the convenience of their home or business.”
To use the service, people can visit payments.mykentcounty.com or download the free app, which is called myKentCounty, from the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android) store on their cell phones.
People will then create an account with PayIt, a company which provides a platform for payment of government services and is partnering with Kent County on the online payments.
From there, people can search their overdue Kent County property taxes, view and pay their bills and print and digitally store receipts of payment.
“We are excited to launch myKentCounty as it will greatly improve our payment system while simultaneously saving taxpayers time and potential penalties,” MacGregor said. “This is another important step in how my office will serve county residents and we will continue to work with PayIt to add future services to the platform.”
People can also reach the payment platform by going to https://www.accesskent.com/Departments/Treasurer/ and selecting the Pay Delinquent Taxes button.
