The County Treasurer acts as the County's banker, receiving and disbursing all funds as provided by state law and county ordinances; providing for daily cash requirements of Bayfield County, and investing public funds not used for daily operations. The Treasurer's Office collects delinquent property or real estate taxes in Bayfield County's 28 municipalities as required by State Statutes. The County Treasurer also maintains property tax data that is accessible to the public at the Courthouse office.
Property tax bills are mailed by the town, city, or village treasurer in mid to late December. Either payment in full or first installment must be made to the proper town, city, or village treasurer by January 31. The second installment is due to the Bayfield County Treasurer by July 31. If any payment due date is not met, the unpaid property tax balance becomes delinquent and accrues interest at a rate of 1% per month retroactive to February 1.
Credit Card / E-Check Payments
Point and Pay is our credit card/e-check processing provider. A convenience fee of 2.39% will be charged for credit/debit card payments. A convenience fee of $1.50 will be charged for an e-check. Only second half payments or delinquent payments can be paid online using Point and Pay; NOT first half payments due to municipalities.
Online payments will be disabled from December 15 to February 15 due to current taxes being payable to the local municipalities only.
