If you do not make payment on your property tax bill by the due date, your bill is considered delinquent and the remaining balance is subject to 1% interest and 1.5% penalty charges per month, retroactive to February 1. Interest and penalties are always charged in full months. (Wis. Stat. 74.12 & 74.47)
If you are paying your taxes in installments on January 31, March 31, and May 31, you must pay all installments by their due dates. If you do not, the entire amount of taxes that remain unpaid is considered delinquent.
