Notices Concerning financial hardship:

For taxpayers in danger of losing their homes due to unpaid 2016 property taxes:

  • The Clare County Treasurer will be holding a Show Cause Hearing in the Treasurer’s Office on Thursday, January 24, 2019, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The hearing will determine if qualifications have been met for an extension. An extension will delay foreclosure for owners who are actively working to catch up their delinquent property taxes. If you are planning to attend the hearing, please read the Financial Hardship Policy and fill out the Financial Hardship Application. You will need to bring with you proof of income, unemployment or financial hardship and present a plan for payment of taxes due. If you intend to pay the 2016 taxes by April 01, 2019, you do not need to attend the hearing.

  • If you cannot attend the Show Cause Hearing or do not agree with determination, you can attend the Judicial Foreclosure Hearing in the 55th Circuit Court on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. in 55th Circuit Court. You must file a written objection with the Circuit Court Clerk and serve those objections onto the Clare County Treasurer. Again, if you intend to pay the 2016 taxes by April 01, 2019, you do not need to attend the hearing.
