A major function of the Assessor's Office is to discover, list, and value uniformly all taxable property in the City. This work is done to ensure the equitable distribution of the total tax burden within the community. It does not determine the total amount of revenues to be raised. A tax levy is established by the state, county, municipality, school districts, and sewer district, to cover their own expenses. The total tax levy is then divided among all owners in proportion to the amount of property they own. Your municipality is required by law to collect that total amount of tax dollars -- no more, no less.
The Wisconsin Department of Revenue has prepared a helpful Guide for Property Owners that provides more information about property assessment and taxation in Wisconsin.

PROPERTY TAX & OWNERSHIP INFORMATION
- Note: The most current owner information can be found on the 2015 tab.
- Real estate searches by tax key number require a full 10 digits, so enter trailing zeros when necessary.
- Hint: To avoid problems with exactly matching field data, enter less information to broaden your search results.
For example, just enter the address number to view all parcels with that number, or just enter the street
name to view all parcels with that street name.
- Contact Milwaukee County Treasurer for the status of prior years taxes, or for delinquent taxes after July 31st.
