Property Search Results: Special Assessment

Special Assessment Information current as of 11/28/22 10:00PM

General Information

There are three (3) types of special assessments.

  • Final assessments and charges are the actual amounts due for completed work.
  • Preliminary assessments are estimated amounts for work in progress.
  • Deferred assessments are those for which payment is deferred until certain conditions are met, or which indicate potential future assessments or charges on a property. Deferred assessments and charges may be subject to accrued interest or indexing.
  • For more information, please call (608) 266-4008.

Special assessments may be required to be paid as part of a property sale or refinancing.

If a preliminary assessment is paid and the subsequent final assessment is less, a refund will be issued as a credit to the owner of record on the next tax bill after the final is approved, unless refund information is provided with the payment or to the City Finance Office.
