Tax & Assessing



There are a number of ways to make property tax payments to the City of Chelsea:



Envelopes should be addressed to the attention of the City Treasurer at: 305 S. Main St. Suite 100, Chelsea, MI 48118


Drop Box

There is a drop box located at the curb towards the rear of the city office for tax and water/sewer payments (checks only please, no cash.) We ask that you put your check and top portion of the bill in an envelope before putting in the drop box.


In Person

Visit the City Offices during normal business hours. The City can accept cash and check only—credit card payments can only be taken online—see instructions below.

Credit Card or Electronic Check

The City offers the ability to make credit card payments online through a secure, third party provider—Official Payments. Visit the City's Home Page > Quick Links > Tax & Utility Account Information page for further details regarding making tax payments online.

To pay taxes online, be sure to have the property owner's last name or address available.
