We have an update from the desk of Door County Treasurer Jay Zahn. Door County property tax bills will be going out soon, so taxpayers can expect to receive them sometime early this month. His office will now be collecting for 16 of the county’s 19 municipalities with the addition of the Town of Brussels this year. Property taxes for the Towns of Clay Banks, Nasewaupee, and Union will continue to go to those local treasurers. Zahn is recommending you make your payment by mail this year since access to the government center is currently limited due to health concerns with coronavirus. Remember that if you would like a receipt you should include a self-addressed stamped envelope. In-person payments can be made at the 5th Ave entrance to the Government Center where a pay window has been added to the Treasurer’s office right inside the door. Due to limited space, you may have to wait outside the building remain socially distanced. In previous years, Associated Bank would collect payment on the county treasurer’s behalf, but due to virus concerns this year they are not. Property tax payments can be made by credit card, debit card, or e-check, but this form of payment will include additional charges. All payment information can be found on the county website. Zahn also informed us that Wisconsin taxpayers will receive a 2020 lottery tax credit on their primary residence. This is a form of property tax relief based on proceeds of the Wisconsin lottery provided by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. The credit amounts for the school districts of Gibraltar, Sevastopol, Southern Door, and Washington Island are all slightly lower this year, however the credit for those in the Sturgeon Bay School District is slightly higher.
