7/18/2019 7:30:00 AM Property tax payments due July 31
To the Editor:
The second installment of the 2018 Oneida County property tax bills is due by July 31, 2019. Due to limited parking and long waiting lines, mailing tax payments is recommended.
If paying by check, please make sure the numeric and written portion of the check are the same and the check is signed. If numeric and written portion of checks do not match or if checks are unsigned they will be returned, which could result in penalty and/or interest charges. Post-dated checks will not be held and will be processed the day they are received.
Oneida County payments can be mailed to Oneida County Treasurer, PO Box 400, Rhinelander, WI, 54501. Payments can also be made in person at the county treasurer's office on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The office is located on the first floor, inside door #2, on the Dahl Street side of the Oneida County Courthouse in Rhinelander. To expedite processing, please have your payment ready and check written before stepping to the counter. For after- hour payments, by check only, please use the dropbox located on the Dahl Street side of the courthouse. We suggest mailing tax payments early. Tax payments must be postmarked by July 31 and received in our office by Aug. 7 or they will accrue a 10.5 percent penalty and interest charge for late payment. Penalty and interest will continue to accrue at a rate of 1.5 percent per month until the bill is paid in full. For more information, call the Oneida County Treasurer office at 715-369-6137.
