More than 3,100 property tax bills were sent to City of Platteville homeowners Thursday, along with 421 personal property tax bills.
The tax rate — including City of Platteville, Platteville Public Schools, Grant County, Southwest Wisconsin Technical College and state forestry taxes — decreased from $20.05 per $1,000 assessed valuation to $20 per $1,000 assessed value.
Deductions on tax bills including the state School Levy Tax Credit, the First Dollar Credit of $69.76 (vs. $72.67 last year), and the lottery credit, which is $118.05 this year compared with $123.76 last year. Only the owner of a home used as the owner’s primary residence is eligible for the lottery credit.
A house assessed at $100,000 last year would have a net tax bill decrease of $5.26, but with the First Dollar Credit and lottery credit applied, the tax bill would increase $3.36, according to city officials.
Tax payments are due Jan. 31 in full, or by installment with the first half due in the city treasurer’s office by Jan. 31 and the Grant County treasurer’s office July 31. Taxes will be collected Monday through Thursday from 7:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Jan. 31, and then weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. beginning Jan. 5.
