Property Tax Information

The county Assessor calculates the property taxes, the Treasurer's Office is resposible for the collection and distributions of them along with any applicable Special District taxes. The treasurer is required to send tax notices annually no later than October 10th to the owner of record as of January 1st of that tax year. The notice must be sent in sealed envelopes to the taxpayer at his last known address. If you do not recieve a tax bill by the end of October feel free to call and you can get another copy.

Keep in mind, if you do not recieve a tax bill it does not change your obligation to pay your taxes by the due dates. The law makes it clear that failure to send notice or demand payment of taxes does not invalidate any taxes due. Specifically W.S. 39-13-107 (b)(i)(C).

The law states that if the property is conveyed on or after January 1st of the tax year, the seller of the property shall pay the taxes for the year unless there is an agreement in writing specifying otherwise. This is often handled in closing. If you are unsure contact your closing company to find out who is responsible. However, the tax bill will remain in the sellers name regardless of who is responsilble for the payment.

The Treasurer's Office disburses the tax monies to various entities. For every tax dollar collected the county receives approximately 12¢, schools receive approximately 66¢ with the remaining 22¢ going to special districts.
