Got my Christmas gift from the city/county/school, how about you? Was your property tax bill what you expected…. or more?



Dec. 12, 2017 – West Bend, WI – Neighbors across Washington County who went to fetch the mail Monday got their annual property tax statement.

If you want to find your statement online click HEREĀ 

Comparing 2016 to 2017 – Washington County was up 2.3% and Moraine Park Technical College climbed a whopping 4.9%.

The school district and city tax varied depending upon the community you live in.

In West Bend the city tax stayed flat and the West Bend School District was down 1.5%.

The lottery-tax credit was $97, which was down from $109 in 2016.

The first-dollar credit was $55.43 which is a smidge less than $57.96 last year.


Property assessments in 2017 remained the same in West Bend however there will be a revaluation in 2018.

If you pay in installments in West Bend, that first payment is due Jan. 31, 2018.

So, thoughts on your 2017 property bill? Up, down, same… where you pleased or were you a little shocked?


  1. More…so much more. It boggles my mind that our taxes are as much as they are, and our High Schools are a complete travesty (rated a 3 or 4 out of 10?!) and the roads are horrible. Where is all our money going?
