Property Taxes Have Minimal Increase Statewide

Overall, Wisconsin property taxpayers are breathing a little easier this year.   A new report from the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance finds one of the smallest property tax increases across the state in years; less than one percent.  The average over the last decade has been closer to five percent.   School property tax rates show an overall decline for the current year.  Some counties and municipalities are seeing a similar decline.  La Crosse county is collecting the same taxes this year as last.   So is Vernon county.  Trempealeau county property collections have actually gone down.   Meanwhile, the biggest county property tax increase percentage-wise in the state is in Crawford county; up over six percent this year.
