Taxes

TAX INFORMATION


The first half of your property taxes is due on January 31. Payments postmarked on or before the due date are on time. Each parcel has its own page, therefore, if you have more than one page, you need to add the pages together for your total amount due.
Your tax bill and cancelled check should serve as your receipt for most needs. If you want a separate printed receipt, you need to request that and send a stamped, self-addressed envelope. A tax list is available showing all taxpayers in the township with the amount of their taxes. The list will be at the town office, the town dump, or you may request a copy be sent to you if you send a stamped, self-addressed envelope for it.
Every year the Town Board and our Assessor conduct an Open Book session. The purpose of this session is to answer questions and explain assessments. The date and time for this will be posted on our website and at our usual posting sights. Watch for it around May or June.

DOG LICENSE

Dog licenses may be purchased through the town Treasurer only during tax time (Dec 15 – Jan 31). Licenses are sold any time at the County Clerk's office at the courthouse in Viroqua. State law requires any dog 5 months or older to have a license.
Checks must be separate from your tax payment and made payable to Town of Kickapoo. The fee is $3 per dog spayed/neutered; $8 per dog if not fixed; $35 for kennel (up to 12 dogs). You must show proof of rabies vaccination to get a license unless you have purchased it from the Treasurer the prior year and no new rabies vaccination is due
