Garfield Township wants to bring to your attention that there have been reports of telephone scams in the area involving property taxes. The scam involves a caller claiming to work for a company called Diversified Consultants, calling to verify your personal information, including your social security number, and is attempting to collect delinquent property taxes. Please do not give them any personal information and contact police authorities at their non-emergency number (231) 922-4550.

Please note that if you are delinquent on your taxes you would be contacted directly by Garfield Township or Grand Traverse County, not by an outside firm, and we would not ask for personal information— such as your social security number.
