The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) and Village of Fox point would like to provide the following information due to the increased number of inquiries related to property tax pre-payments.
Under state law (sec. 74.13, Wis. Stats.), general property taxes, special assessments, special charges and special taxes may be paid in advance of the levy during the period from August 1 until the third Monday in December each year.
This means:-Pre-payment of 2017 taxes was allowed from August 1, 2017 to December 18, 2017-Pre-payment of 2018 taxes may be made from August 1, 2018 to December 17, 2018
(Fox Point typically has their tax settlement with Milwaukee County in August and is the tax account is prepared for tax pre-payment in September.)
Property owners cannot pre-pay December 2018 taxes at this time. There is one exception–businesses ceasing operation may pre-pay personal property taxes on a commercial business any time before December 17, 2018 in the year it ceases.
We appreciate your understanding.
Village of Fox Point
