Trempealeau County is divided into 26 municipalities. Our office processes tax bills and collects taxes on over 30,000 tax parcels.
The local Municipal Treasurers send out the tax bills in mid December. Only the local treasurers can accept payments for the first installment or any amount paid for the current tax year by January 31st. Personal property bills are paid to the Municipal Treasurer year round.
Second installment taxes must be paid to the County Treasurer by July 31st. All payments for delinquent taxes are collected by the County Treasurer.
If you are considering purchasing a property, it is always wise to check to make sure the taxes on the property are current. Once you purchase a property, any delinquent property taxes become your responsibility. If you are purchasing title insurance or having an abstract updated, the title company will check this for you.
The County Treasurer's Office is also responsible for receiving and depositing funds from all county departments, investing county funds, processing accounts payable and payroll checks, and administering the lottery credit program.
