Budget & Taxes
Tax payments may be made three different ways: In Person, By Mail and Electronically.
You may pay your Real Estate Taxes in person at Jefferson City Hall, 317 South Main Street, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Please note that the second installment goes to Jefferson County, 311 S. Center Ave, Jefferson, WI 53549)
**To have your tax bill recorded in 2017, please visit us in person prior to January 1st OR drop your payment in the silver (utility) box outside our Dodge Street entrance prior to (January) 1st, mail with a postmark date of December 31, make a payment on-line on the 31st of December (or prior).
All tax payments can be made by mail.
To receive a receipt of your taxes via mail, you MUST enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Receipts may also be obtained by stopping into City Hall.
Your envelope MUST be postmarked in December 2017 to have your payment credited to 2017. We do not accept the date on your check
Once again, the City will have electronic collection of tax bills. This will allow you to use your credit or debit card for the payment of your taxes. However, this service will charge you a 3% “convenience charge” on the amount being paid. The convenience charge is collected by Official Payments and is NOT collected by the City of Jefferson. The City of Jefferson WILL NOT receive any portion of the 3% convenience fee.
