Tax Bills & Receipts
The tax bills are printed with details of their office hours and payment procedures.
The County will return all
post-dated checks. Those wishing a receipt should include a stamped, self-addressed envelope along with their payment.
The tax rate you are charged is the rate which is necessary to raise sufficient money from the property tax to meet the levy of the Village as well as those levied by the State, County, Stevens Point School District and Mid-State Technical College.
The tax rate is the same for all property within the Village. The amount of real estate tax allocated to each individual taxpayer is based upon the local assessed value of the parcel.
The yearly Assessment Roll is open for inspection prior to holding of the annual Board of Review to give residents the opportunity to review their assessment or those of other properties in the Village.
At least fifteen days prior to Open Book and Board of Review, notice of date and time is published in the local newspaper. Under Wisconsin State law, you may file an objection to your property assessment if you feel that your assessment is incorrect and you may appear before the annual Board of Review. To do so an official Objection to Property Assessment form must be completed and filed with the Village Clerk prior to the scheduled Board of Review.
These forms are available in the Village Clerk's Office in the Municipal Building after April 15th of each year.
For further information regarding property assessments, please contact the Village Assessor at 715-345-5250.
