Welcome to the Gogebic County Treasurer's Home Page!Lisa Hewitt-04089_pp

We have worked hard to provide you with online services that provide useful information about our office, our work and our fiduciary obligation to safe-keep financial resources. Our goal is to provide you with information and easy access to make an online tax payment, obtain your personal tax information or to provide you with a better understanding of what services we provide.

The Office of the County Treasurer was established by the Michigan State Constitution. The Treasurer is an elected official and serves a 4-year term. The majority of the Treasurer's duties are set by statute; however, authority is also provided for by the County Board of Commissioners and needs of our community.

The Treasurer is the custodian of all County funds, and is responsible for receipting, recording and investing all money received by the various departments within the County. As Investment Officer for the County, the Treasurer is responsible for the safeguarding and investing of these monies, acting in accordance with the County's Investment Policy.

The Treasurer is also responsible for the collection of delinquent real property taxes, settling with the Townships and Cities for their uncollected real property taxes, selling dog licenses, auditing of Principal Residence Exemptions, collecting of delinquent personal property taxes, conducting the annual property tax forfeiture/foreclosure process and auction.

Our office is committed to carrying out these responsibilities in the most efficient means possible, while providing outstanding customer service through a process of continuous evaluation of the way in which we do business. Simply use the navigation menu on the left to find what you are looking for. If you can't find what you need give us a call and we'll be happy to assist you.
