On Thursday, May 28th, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed Executive Order 2020-106, extending the redemption deadline on 2017 tax foreclosures from March 31, 2020 to June 29, 2020.  The order does not defer nor cancel interest charges. Interest will accrue beyond the original March 31, 2020 deadline until paid.
