2021 Property Tax Bill Changes

DOR contacted the three primary software providers to ensure they have the ability to make these changes. A sample of the updated 2021 property tax bill is on our Property Tax Bills web page.

  1. Bill front
    • Remove "State of Wisconsin" line under "Taxing Jurisdiction"
    • Contact your software provider(s) to remove the state tax line starting with December 2021 property tax bills

  2. Bill backer
    • Remove the "State Taxes" information
    • Update to WHEDA acronym under the "Additional Tax Credits Available" section

Note: We will update other DOR forms throughout the year to reflect the removal of the State Taxes line.
