Property Tax Statements are mailed to property owners in December. Your entire tax payment or the first installment if you choose to pay installments is due January 31. If you choose to pay in installments, the second installment is due July 31.
Tax payments should be made to the Pierce County Treasurer.
Option One: Pay By Mail Please mail your tax payment to:
Pierce County Treasurer
PO Box 87
Ellsworth, WI 54011
Your payment must be postmarked on or before January 31, 2023. Please make checks payable to Pierce County Treasurer. Enclose the payment stub from your tax statement so payment will be applied correctly. However, if there are delinquent taxes, payment will be applied to delinquent taxes first. If you want receipts, please include a self-addressed envelope with appropriate postage. If you want a receipt with a 2022 date, it must be received by the county no later than Friday, 12/30/22.
Option Two: Dropbox at Courthouse
We welcome you to use the 24-hour payment drop box which is located near the courthouse rear parking lot off Kinne Street. When you drive into the parking lot, look straight ahead and you will see signs marking the drop box location.
