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. City Hall is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 am-5:00 pm. (Please note that City Hall is closed on Tuesday, Dec. 26, 2017.) If paying your taxes after January 31, you must pay at the Dane County Treasurer's Office, located in the City/County Building in Madison.
Yes, can you send a check or money order in the mail to: Monona City Hall, 5211 Schluter Rd., Monona, WI 53716. Please do not send cash in the mail. If you'd like a receipt for your payment, please include the entire bill and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. The top portion of your bill will be stamped "paid" and returned as your receipt. Any payments made after January 31, must be sent to the Dane County Treasurer at P.O. Box 1299, Madison, WI 53701-1299.
You can pay by credit card online or by phone only. Credit card payments cannot be accepted at City Hall. To pay by credit card, go to www.officialpayments.com or call 1-800-272-9829. Please note that an additional fee (calculated as a percentage of your payment) is charged for paying by credit card.
Yes. There are two options for dropping off your payment after regular business hours. You may drop your payment in the payment drop box located in the parking lot of City Hall, or you may drop your payment in the after-hours drop slot located in the front administration counter at City Hall. Payments dropped in the after-hours box or slot will be stamped as paid on the next regular business morning. In addition, all payments dropped in the box or slot by midnight on December 31 will be marked as paid in 2017.
If paying before January 31, make your check payable to "City of Monona." Payments made after Janaury 31 should be made payable to "Dane County Treasurer."
If your escrow check was written for more than your tax amount, the City of Monona will issue you a refund. Please allow 10 days for the City to process your refund check.
