FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR TAX BILL

WHAT IS THE $12.50 OTHER CHARGE?  This is the fee for Gold Cross Ambulance service.  For more information, please see your Village Voice newsletter.

WHY HAVE MY PROPERTY TAXES INCREASED?
The taxing districts that have increased include:

  • Village of Hortonville
  • State of Wisconsin
  • Hortonville School District
  • Black Otter Lake District

The Village of Hortonville's tax increase is primarily due to:

  • 2015 Village wide assessment - many property values increased.  You should have received notification of your new assessed value earlier this year.  The Board of Review hearing provided an opportunity for property owners to review and/or object  their assessed value.  This hearing was held September 28th.  If you have questions regarding your assessed value, you may contact the village assessor, Bowmar Appraisal.  920-733-5369 or bowmar@sbcglobal.net.
  • Fire Truck - The Hortonville-Hortonia Fire District purchased a new fire truck.  Hortonville took out a loan to pay for its 60.8% share of the truck.  These loan payments result in increased debt payments the village must cover.
  • Black Otter Lake Dam - The Village took out a loan to pay for its portion of the dam replacement.  These loan payments result in increased debt payments the village must cover.
