Annual Tax Insert
Property Tax Bill
Your Property Tax Bill covers the period from January 1 to December 31 annually. A combined Tax and Assessment notice is mailed in April with a due date of June 30. Failure to receive a tax notice does not exempt you from penalty after the due date. A 5% penalty is added to any unpaid balance after June 30, and if not paid by November 30 another 5% penalty is applied. Taxes can be paid at the County office, at your bank, or through online banking.
If paying your Tax Notice through online banking, make sure to select "Wheatland County Taxes" and enter your Roll number when prompted for an account.

All previous levies must be paid in full to begin on the TIPP program. Payments are made by automatic withdrawal from your bank account the first of every month. You can join the plan until May 1, provided the missed monthly payments and a small late filing fee are paid. The Tax Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) Form is also available at the County office.
