HOW DO I MAKE A PAYMENT?

  2. Send check to Village of Whitefish Bay, PO Box 8411, Carol Stream, IL  60197-8411

HOW DO I OBTAIN A RECEIPT?

Receipts may be obtained in one of three ways:

  1. Use the Village website, www.wfbvillage.org. Tax payments are processed daily, and receipts may be printed at your convenience. (A payment link will be added after tax bills are sent out).
  2. Include a self-addressed stamped envelope with payment sent via mail or night deposit box
  3. Receive receipt at time of payment in person at Associated Bank.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DO NOT PAY ON TIME?                                                                                     

For any property tax bill where payment is not made timely, the bill is considered delinquent and the remaining balance is subject to interest and penalty.  Pursuant to Wisconsin State Statutes and Village of Whitefish Bay Municipal Code, delinquent property tax bills are charged 1.5% interest and penalty per month (in the calculation of interest and penalty, a partial month is considered a full month).  Interest and penalty are charged retroactive to February 1, 2018.
