2017 Real Estate Taxes
2017 tax bills were mailed December 6, 2017. For additional tax information, please stop into the Finance Department or call us at (920) 832-6442. The "My Neighborhood" program also contains tax information.
2016 and prior Real Estate Taxes
Outstanding balances on 2016 and all prior years' tax bills are considered delinquent and must be paid to the County Treasurer of Outagamie, Winnebago, or Calumet, depending on where in Appleton the property is located.
If you are paying in person with an escrow check and your refund is $500 or less, you may receive your refund in cash. If your refund is greater than $500 or you are paying via US Mail or one of our drop boxes, any refunds due will be mailed within 2 weeks.
Tax bills may be paid in four installments, as detailed on the property tax bill. Due dates for 2018 are: January 31; April 2; May 31; and July 31. There is no interest charge for payments made on time. A late payment on any installment, however, will result in cancellation of the installment option and a monthly charge for interest calculated from February 1, 2018 on the unpaid balance, as required by State law.
Other Notes Regarding Tax Collection
To avoid long lines at City Hall, please mail your payment or use one of the drop boxes listed above. Enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you require a receipt. Complete all parts of your check and sign it. Make your check payable to "City of Appleton." Endorse all escrow checks; all parties named on the check must endorse it.
