Property Taxes

Tax bills were sent to households the week of December 10th. If you did not receive your property tax bill please visit the Village website or contact Village Hall.

WHEN IS MY TAX BILL DUE?

Due date is January 31, 2019. 

An installment payment option is available. There is no need to sign up for the installment option, but payments must be made timely. If any installment payment is missed, the installment option is lost and the entire balance becomes due in full.   Installment payments of taxes and other charges as indicated on your tax bill are due as follows:

  • 1st Installment due by January 31   
  • 2nd Installment due by March 31 (March 31 is a Sunday.  Please plan accordingly)            
  • Final Installment due by May 31

 WHAT HAPPENS IF I DO NOT PAY ON TIME?

For any property tax bill where payment is not made timely, the bill is considered delinquent and the remaining balance is subject to interest and penalty.  If a payment is missed, the installment plan is no longer available and the balance is due in full.  Pursuant to Wisconsin State Statutes and Village of Whitefish Bay Municipal Code, delinquent property tax bills are charged 1.5% interest and penalty per month (in the calculation of interest and penalty, a partial month is considered a full month).  Interest and penalty are charged retroactive to February 1, 2019.
