Property Tax Payment Information

Property tax bills are mailed in December by the town, city or village treasurer.   Tax bills, statements and receipts can be printed online.


Only the appropriate town, city or village treasurers can accept payments for the first installment.  The Sawyer County Treasurer cannot accept current year tax payments due by January 31.  As a result, telephone and online payment options to the county are deactivated during December and January.

All bills less than $100 have to be paid in full by January 31 to the appropriate town, city or village treasurer.

All personal property taxes, except improvements on leased land, are due in full by January 31 to the appropriate town, city or village treasurer.  Any inquiries regarding personal property tax information should be directed to the local municipality treasurer.  

All delinquent taxes are paid to the Sawyer County Treasurer and can be paid at any time.
