Property Taxes


The total amount due has NOT changed

There was an error on the original tax bills mailed on December 8. The total amount due was correct. The allocation of tax amounts to the Madison Metro School District and Madison College were transposed. Corrected tax bills have been mailed, they are on an off-white colored paper.

If you have already paid your taxes, no action is necessary.

When your new bill arrives, please discard the prior copy you have received. Please only submit ONE payment for the amount listed on the bottom remittance slip.

Tax bills are statutorily required to be mailed to property owners each year by the third Monday of December. The Village's policy is to mail tax bills to property owners, not lending institutions.
