Why is the property tax bill in the previous owner's name?

Assessments are based on how the property existed on January 1 of the given tax year.  The tax bill will be sent to the person that owned the property on the date the tax bills were created.  If the property was split, all tax bills will still be sent to the individual of record as of the date the bills are created.  Newly created deeds and parcels are assessable and taxable in the following tax year.  If you have questions, contact Town Hall at (608) 833-5887. 

Be sure to submit a lottery credit form when appropriate.
