Other frequently asked questions about the 2019 tax bill

Why did Wauwatosa do a revaluation?

We are required by the State of Wisconsin to be within 10% of market value. The last revaluation was in 2013. The result of a revaluation is that taxes are equitably distributed among the taxable properties in the municipality. What was the impact of the revaluation? The average increase for a Wauwatosa property was 17.1%. This means an increase or decrease to your tax bill, depending on the percent change in the value of your property. An increase occurs if you are above the average and a decrease occurs if you are below.

What else impacts my taxes?

Besides the revaluation, taxes are affected by the changes to the budgets of the taxing jurisdictions (City of Wauwatosa, Wauwatosa School District, Milwaukee Area Technical College, Sewer District, and Milwaukee County) and the school referendum.

Is the Wauwatosa School District collecting more money as a result of the increase in assessed property value?

No. The Wauwatosa School District is not collecting more money as a result of the increase in assessed property value. While your individual share of the referendum total may change based on a change in your assessed property value, the total referendum cost does not change.

How do I view the school district referendum charge?

On the online portal, go to the "Taxes" tab and click on "Print Tax Bill." At the bottom of your tax bill, you will see "Wauwatosa Sch Dist" and the amount specifically supporting the referendum. You will see this same line on your printed bill in the mail.
