Wisconsin taxing districts (municipalities, schools, counties, etc.) set their budgets in the fall, usually November. After each district has set its levy for the next year, property taxes are calculated and bills are prepared. This means bills are usually received by taxpayers in mid-December.

Because of the deductability of property tax on federal income taxes, many property owners pay all of the bill by December 31. However, all that is required is that the first installment be paid by January 31. For those who choose to pay in two installments, the second installment is due by July 31, and a statement for the installment is mailed in May.
If paying your taxes before January 31, you may pay in person at Monona City Hall, 5211 Schluter Road. Due to COVID-19, we strongly discourage you from paying your taxes in person this year and ask that you consider dropping your payment in the drive-up drop box located in the parking lot at City Hall (next to the flagpoles).
