Property Tax Bill Information
Property tax bills will be mailed out to Wind Point residents in the next week.

Please make sure to include your tax bill paystub with your payment. If your escrow amount is greater than the full tax bill, the Village will issue you a refund check. The refund check is issued within approximately 15 business days.

Tax payment options are the same as prior years. The first installment or full payment is due to Village of Wind Point by January 31, 2022. Below are the options to pay your property taxes:

  • In-Person: Payments can be made at the Village Office, 215 E. Four Mile Road. Please note the Village Office will be closed on December 23, 24, 30 and 31.

  • Drop Box at Village Office: A secure drop box is located on the circle drive outside the office next to the tennis courts.

Lottery and Gaming Credit
If your home in Wind Point was your primary residence as of January 1, 2021, make sure you are receiving the Lottery and Gaming credit on your tax bill. You can check by reviewing your tax bill or by checking the Lottery Credit Finder. The credit amount for the 2021 tax bill is $246.63 which is set by the State based on revenue from the Wisconsin lottery, pari-mutuel on-track betting and bingo during the year. The credit can only be claimed for one property and cannot be claimed by renters or on business property, rental units, vacant land, garages or other property that is not the primary residence of the owner. You can still add or remove the credit from the 2021 tax bill before January 31 by contacting the Village Office at 262-639-3524.

Property Taxes Support Local Services. Although the Village of Wind Point collects tax payments, most of your tax dollars are distributed to other jurisdictions to fund a variety of important services and institutions. The following is a breakdown of where each tax dollar goes:
