County treasurer reminds public of second payment due on taxes

by Elaine Wedell,

 County Treasurer

If your real estate tax bill qualifies, you are given the option of paying a first installment on or before January 31 and the second installment or postponed installment on or before July 31. Notices are not sent to remind you to make the second installment payment.

You should check your receipt/payment record for the amount paid on the first installment to be sure that your second installment amount is correct. If you paid an amount different than the amount shown on the payment stub, then the second installment payment stub amount would be different.

The 2015 tax bills are available to be printed from the county homepage at www.co.waushara.wi.us. In the Land Record Web Portal, a copy of the tax record showing payment history can also be printed. It is important that your check is issued for the correct amount and made payable to Waushara County Treasurer for the second installment.
