Now Pay Delinquent Real Property Taxes Online
Eaton County Treasurer, Bob Robinson, announced this month that Eaton County property owners have a new and convenient way to make delinquent tax payments.  The treasurer’s office has contracted with Official Payments, a leading provider of electronic payment solutions to offer delinquent tax payment processing over the Internet through credit card and debit card transaction.  Visa, Discover, and MasterCard debit and credit cards will be accepted. This new service offers taxpayers a fast and efficient way to pay online and reduces manual processing time in the treasurer’s office.

“Through a unique partnership with Official Payments and BS&A Software, taxpayers can get online, pay, and process their delinquent tax payments instantly, in real time,” said Robinson.  “This is part of our ongoing work to increase efficiency in the treasurer’s office.  It can also help folks avoid last minute additional fees and interest on their past due real property taxes.”

The Eaton County Victim-Witness Assistance Service is a liaison
between crime victims and witnesses, and the criminal justice system.


    Crime in Eaton County touches all of us. When one person is victimized, we all --- as a community --- suffer. If you are not personally a victim of crime, then you know a relative, friend or neighbor who is. Being a victim of, or a witness to, crime can be a frightening experience. You often feel violated by the intrusion into your life and are left with feelings of anger and pain.

    Victims and witnesses naturally look to the criminal justice system for vindication and justice, but all too often find a court system which appears to be dedicated to protecting the very people who have caused their anger and pain. While the criminal justice system is designed to protect, support and serve our communities, most citizens do not learn about it until after they become victims of crime --- the worst possible time to try to understand the complex roles and responsibilities of each of the "players" in the system. However, no criminal can be successfully prosecuted without the valuable assistance of victims and witnesses.

    As a result of strong advocacy, crime victims have rights. The web pages linked above will help you to learn about those rights, inform you about Michigan's Victim Compensation Fund, answer many questions concerning crime victims, and advise you of local, state-wide and national crime victim resources.  The National Center for Victims of Crime has links to cover topics such as; Assault, Child Abuse (for youth), Domestic Violence, Homicide, Impaired Driving, Robbery, Sexual Violence, Stalking and What Adults Need to Know About Child Abuse.  We are one of many service agencies created to help and support victims of crime. 

    Our Victim-Witness Assistance Program is designed to help victims and witnesses ... to answer questions ... to keep you informed ... to provide referrals to counseling and support groups ... and to provide personal assistance when possible.   

    I encourage you to contact our Victim-Witness Coordinator, Heather Hicks, if you have any questions. We are here to serve you.


    With kindest regards,
    Douglas R. Lloyd
    Eaton County Prosecuting Attorney
