Treasurers issue tax bill reminder

To the Editor:

Property taxpayers should have received their 2019 tax bills. Pay your local treasurer at this time! If you did not receive your tax bill, you should contact your county or your local treasurer.

The Oneida County treasurer's office can be reached at 715-369-6137. Remember, state law states you must pay your taxes and pay them on time even if you did not receive a tax bill. You can also find the 2019 Oneida County tax information, including the tax bill, on the Oneida County website. Go to Click on Tax, Parcel, Permit, and Deed Search on the left side of the screen to access the information. Municipal treasurers will update the county website with payments they have received.

The Vilas County treasurer's office can be reached at 715-479-3609. Vilas County tax information is available on the county website at Go to the Treasurer Department to view tax information and reprint a copy of your tax bill. Tax payments are updated nightly.

The Lincoln County Treasurer's office can be reached at 715-539-1067. Lincoln County tax information is available on the county website at, click on Treasurer's Dept. or will take you directly to the land records system where you can print your tax bill.

You must pay at least the first installment listed on the tax bill on or before Jan. 31 to your local town/city treasurer. Make the check and the envelope out to your municipality. We receive payments made to the municipality, but mailed to the county, which we cannot apply. Payments will be sent to the municipality before Jan. 31. If you miss the payment deadline, or if you pay less than the amount due, your taxes will be delinquent. You will be charged interest and possibly penalty each month on the total unpaid tax amount if you miss this payment. More importantly, however, you lose the option of making your second half payment in July.

Now is also the time to be sure you are certified for the Lottery and Gaming Credit. Please check your tax bill. The amount of the Lottery and Gaming Credit appears in the middle of your tax bill, right above the Net Property Tax calculation.

If you have not received the Lottery Credit and meet the requirements, contact your local treasurer who will see that you receive a claim form or go to to obtain a copy of the Lottery and Gaming credit application.

You must sign and return the form to your local treasurer before you can be certified for and receive the credit. You are only allowed one credit. It must be property that was owned by you and was your primary residence on Jan. 1, 2019 to be eligible for the credit.

This form must be in the hands of the local treasurer by Jan. 31 to receive the credit off the current tax bill.
