Year-End Tax Collections

Do you want to make your tax payment in time for use on your 2011 federal and state tax return?  Any tax collections received after the close of Village Hall on December 30, 2011 will be marked as received in December if one of the following methods is used:

1.       Payment is dropped off in the village’s drop box out front of the Village Hall by 12:00 midnight December 31, 2011.  The drop box will be emptied promptly on January 1, 2012.
2.       Payment is made to the State Bank of Cross Plains during office hours on December 31, 2011 which are 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
3.       Payment is made by placing your tax payment in the mail so it has a December 31. 2011 postmark.

Please remember, if you want a receipt you will need to enclose your entire tax bill and a self-addressed stamped envelope.  The village will stamp the top part of your tax bill and mail it back in the self-addressed envelope.

In addition, many mortgage companies wait until the very end to mail in escrow checks.  The village will be processing these as they come in early next week and the payments will be posted to December if the mortgage payments are postmarked by December 31, 2011.

Village Hall will be closed December 31, 2011 through January 2, 2012.
