Property Tax & Assessment Information

Paying Your Tax Bill

  • Please read all information on your tax bill thoroughly. 

  • When writing your check out and making your payment, make sure it matches the exact amount of the payment as printed on the tax bill.

  • Property tax bills will be printed and mailed by the Sauk County Treasurer office no later than the 3rd Monday in December.  The tax bills will be mailed to the name and address as listed on County records.  The Village will not have tax bill information until the bills are printed and mailed by the County.  In most cases, tax bills will be mailed by the County around the same time the Village receives the information.

  • First installment or entire tax bill must be paid on or before January 31, payment made payable to the Village of Prairie du Sac.  Mailed payments must be postmarked on or before January 31, and mailed to the following address: Village of Prairie du Sac, 335 Galena Street, Prairie du Sac, WI 53578

  • Second installment must be paid to the Sauk County Treasurer (not the Village of Prairie du Sac) on or before July 31, at the following address: Sauk County Treasurer, Sauk County West Square Building, Room #148, 505 Broadway, Baraboo, WI 53913

  • If you require a receipt of payment and are not paying in person, you must include a self addressed stamped envelope (this would include using the Village’s payment drop box).

  • If your taxes are escrowed, it is your responsibility to make sure full payment is received by the due date.

  • If you are only paying the first installment by January 31, you must make sure you pay the full amount of the first installment. If this payment is short, it will be considered delinquent and subject to interest penalty.

  • You may claim the lottery and gaming credit for taxes, if, on January 1, of the tax year, not the year the taxes are due, you were the owner of the property and used the property as your primary residence. You can have only one primary residence. The credit cannot be claimed on business property, rental units, land, garages or other properties that are not your primary residence, or by a non-Wisconsin resident.  If you qualify, please review your tax bill to insure you are getting this credit.

  • Dog/cat licenses (expire on December 31), utility and tax bill payments cannot be made with one check.  Each must be paid with separate checks. 

  • Property Tax information will be available from the Sauk County's Ascent Land Records System (ALRS), link below.
