Town of Lenroot Treasurer



Most privately owned real estate in the Wisconsin is taxed.  Property taxes fund counties, townships and schools.

Where do I pay my property taxes?

Current year taxes paid before January 31 are payable to the Town of Lenroot Treasurer by mail, to the address shown on your tax bill. Open hours for payment at the town hall vary each year.

When is my property tax payment due?

Property tax bills are mailed by the Town of Lenroot in December.

Payment of the first installment of taxes, or payment in full, is due to the Town of Lenroot Treasurer by January 31.

Payment of the second installment of taxes is due to the Sawyer County Treasurer by July 31.

What if I miss the January 31 deadline?

If the first installment is not paid by January 31, the entire unpaid balance becomes delinquent (voiding all installment options) and is subject to interest effective February 1 at a rate of 1% per month and penalty of 0.25% per month until it is paid in full. (sec. 74.47, Wis. Stats.)

How does the Treasurer determine if a real estate tax payment is considered timely?

Per State Statute 74.69(1): Property tax payments are considered timely if:
•    They are in a properly addressed envelope.
•    They are postmarked on or before the respective due dates, with postage prepaid.
•    They are received by the proper official within 5 working days of the due date.  We urge taxpayers to mail payments several days early to avoid postal delay.

Own Personal Property in Lenroot?
Personal property taxes, except improvements on leased land, must be paid in full to the Town of Lenroot treasurer on or before 5 working days after January 31 or the taxes are delinquent.

Want a receipt?
Provide/include a copy of this tax bill, payment stub, or Tax ID number with your payment. Receipts will NOT be mailed unless a self-addressed, stamped envelope is included. A receipt can also be printed from the Sawyer County website at If making payment by check, your tax receipt is not valid until the check has cleared all banks.
