Failure to Pay on Time
If your tax bill qualifies and if you choose to pay your taxes in installments, then you must pay each installment by the due date or the total amount of your remaining unpaid taxes, special assessments, special charges and special taxes (if any) will be delinquent (s.74.11(7) or 74.12 and 7487, Wisconsin Statutes).
All delinquent taxes are subject to interest of 1% per month from February 1 until paid, and in addition, will be subject to a.5% penalty for a total of 1.5% interest and penalty per month (fraction of a month counts as a whole month).
