Real Estate / Personal Property Tax Payment Options
PLEASE NOTE: THE FIRST INSTALLMENT OF YOUR 2021 PROPERTY TAX BILL IS DUE BY MONDAY, JANUARY 31ST, 2022.
If you chose to pay your taxes in installments, your first installment is due by January 31st, 2022 to the Village of Richfield Treasurer and your second installment will be due July 31st, 2022 to the Washington County Treasurer. If you do not pay the TOTAL amount of your taxes by the scheduled due dates, the TOTAL amount of your remaining unpaid taxes will be delinquent (Wis Stats 74.11(7), 74.12, or 74.87). Delinquent taxes are subject to interest and penalties until they are paid in full.
To pay your second installment to the Washington County Treasurer by mail, mail your payment to:
Washington County Treasurer
432 E Washington St, PO Box 1986
West Bend, WI 53095-7986
To pay your second installment to the Washington County Treasurer by phone or online, visit the Washington County Treasurer website here.
If you elect to pay by mail, please do so prior to the due date to ensure timely payment. First installments are due to Village Hall by January 31st and second installments are due on July 31st. Include the following with your payment: the tax coupon and a check or money order payable to "The Village of Richfield." Mailed payments are considered timely if postmarked on or before the January 31st due date. Remember to send a self-addressed and stamped envelope to receive a receipt. Any outstanding payments past January 31st must be sent to the Washington County Treasurer's Office.
Checks issued by lending institutions must be properly endorsed by all parties listed as payee. Tax receipts are valid only after deposited check has cleared the bank. Any returned checks from your bank voids your payment. There is a $30 charge for all checks returned from the bank for any reason.
Tax payments can be made in person in the lower level of the Village Hall, west side entrance, or at Landmark Credit Union located at 3098 Reflections Drive, Hubertus, WI. You can pay your taxes at the local Landmark Credit Union during their regular business hours beginning December 15. A calendar of when the Treasurer's Office and Landmark Credit Union will be open to collect taxes can be found in the November/December publication of the Richfield Happenings newsletter and can also be viewed here. If paying at Landmark Credit Union, you will be issued a receipt just as you would if you paid at the Village Hall. Landmark Credit Union does not issue dog licenses. Dog Licenses must be purchased at the Village Hall.
Located at the Village Hall, to the left of the main entrance, the drop box is a secure depository for payments available 24 hours a day. Follow the same instructions as if you were mailing. Tax payments will be removed and processed each business day.
