Property Tax Questions

  • When Will Our Property Tax Bills Be Mailed Out? Property tax bills are mailed out by the Town of Delavan by mid-December of each year.
  • What should I do if my property tax bill is not received? If you do not receive your property tax bill by December 20th please contact Darlene Stark, our Town of Delavan Treasurer at [email protected] Failure to receive your property tax bill does not exempt you from paying property taxes timely, and interest and penalty due to delinquency.
  • Where do I pay my property taxes Prior to January 31st of each year, all current year property tax payments and checks should be made payable to the Town of Delavan and paid at the Town Hall - 5621 Town Hall Road, Delavan, WI, 53115, Attn: Treasurer. After February 1st, property tax payments should be made payable to and paid to the Walworth County Treasurer, P.O. Box 1001, Elkhorn, WI 53121
  • Is there an Option to Pay Online? In 2022, the Town of Delavan will provide an option to pay online. Credit Card Usage Fees will apply. Stay tuned for more information.
  • What information should be included when paying my property taxes?
    Please include a stub from your tax bill. If not available, write the tax parcel number on your check. If sending one check for multiple payments, please include a list showing each tax parcel number and amount to apply to each parcel number. If you want a receipt, please enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Tax receipt is not valid until all payments have cleared all banks.
  • What determines a timely payment?
    Please refer to the back of your tax bill for the statutory definition of a timely payment on current year tax payments. For delinquent payments, the statutes allow for United States Postal Service postmarks to be used as the effective date of payment. Please have the Post Office hand stamp your envelope with the current day's postmark if paying at the end of a month.
  • What happens if my property tax bill is delinquent? Delinquent property taxes are charged interest and penalty at a rate of 1.5% per month on the unpaid tax owed, beginning February 1st until paid in full. All delinquent property taxes are payable to the Walworth County Treasurer’s Office. If property taxes are delinquent for 2 or more years, the property will be subject to foreclosure.
