OSHKOSH, Wis. (WBAY) - The City of Oshkosh is says there’s a discrepancy in real estate and property tax bills mailed out Friday, December 17. Winnebago County’s portion of the taxes appears in the Net Property Tax amount but it is not itemized in the printed tax bill.

The Total Due is the correct amount; there’s just a line item that wasn’t printed.

Property owners can view and print a version of their tax bill that does include the Winnebago County line item on the city’s web site. A copy can also be requested by visiting the Finance Department on the first floor of city hall, 215 Church Ave.

Last week, Oshkosh reassured people they aren’t being double-billed on their taxes after about 500 duplicate real estate and personal property tax bills went to property owners by mistake. The bills went out on December 10.

Residents only need to pay one property tax bill by December 30. Tax payments can be paid online, mailed, or dropped in a secure box outside city hall. They can also be paid in person during regular business hours at city hall, two Associated Bank branches (10 W. Murdock Ave. or 1765 W. 20th Ave.) or three Community First Credit Union branches (1492 South Park Ave., 2424 Westowne Ave. or 2772 Oregon St.)

City staff are figuring out how duplicate bills went out. People who received a duplicate are being asked to email their parcel number and address to tax@ci.oshkosh.wi.us.
