Per MCL 211.135, The County Treasurer provides tax certification on documents such as deeds or land contracts that convey ownership of property. A tax certificate confirms that all taxes on a property have been paid in full for the past 5 years. The following is the procedure our office follows to complete this process for our customers:
Each deed must have a parcel number that corresponds to the legal description contained in the deed.
Per MCL 48.101 (2), the charge for deed certificates is $5.00 to certify a deed containing up to 25 legal descriptions. There is an additional charge of $0.20 per parcel for more than 25 parcels on a single deed.
