Change in Tax Payment Deadline-

The County Board passed Act 185, which would extend the payment deadline for the second installment of 2019 property taxes until October 1st, 2020. As part of this act, each municipality had to pass a similar resolution for it to take full effect, otherwise the due date would remain at July 31st. 

As of June 26th, 2020 ALL municipalities have passed their resolutions. What this means is if you are current with your 2019 taxes you can wait to pay the 2nd installment until October 1st, 2020. Please keep in mind that there is never a penalty for early payment. 

Our office is currently open normal business hours to accept payments. If you are looking to drop off a payment after hours, there is a locked, drop box on the outside of the 5th avenue entrance to the Government center. If you would like a receipt please include a self addressed stamped envelope with your payment.

Due to the extension of the tax deadline, Associated bank will not be collecting 2nd installment payments on the counties behalf. 

Thank you,

Door County Treasurer

The Treasurer is a Constitutional Officer, elected every four years by the voters of Door County.

The County Treasurer receipts all monies that are transacted in the County with the bulk of those receipts being the collection of property taxes.

The County Treasurer collects property taxes for fifteen of the nineteen municipalities within the County. 

In four municipalities, first half collections are made in January by the local treasurers. July payments are made to the County Treasurer.

Non-payment of taxes for three years can result in eventual foreclosure by the County. The property will later be sold to recover taxes and assessments.
