Town of Deerfield Overpayment Policy:

Deerfield Township has adopted a policy that no overpayment of taxes will be issued if it is $5.00 or less.  The board has taken this action to help defer costs of collection.

Lottery Credit:

If a lottery credit does not appear on your tax bill for your primary residence, you may request an application for the 2016 credit from me before January 31, 2018.  A primary residence is where you live most of the time and your are entitled to only one credit.  If you currently receive the lottery credit, your certification automatically continues.  The law requires that you notify the county treasurer within 30 days if you no longer own the property or you no longer use it as your primary residence.

First Dollar Credit:

This will apply to all improved property and it need not be a primary residence.  First Dollar Credit does not apply to vacant parcels, mobile homes on which a parking fee is paid and improvements on leased land.

Agricultural Land Owners:

Ag land which may be converted to non-farm uses could become subject to a use value conversion charge.


No land use permit shall be issued for any property where taxes are shown as being delinquent, as determined by the Waushara County Treasurer.
