Payment Options

Click on Payment Options for more information on payments to the Burnett County Treasurer for delinquent taxes and current taxes due July 31. 

Due to the closure of the government center, in-person payments may only be made by calling the office so you may be met at the door and escorted to the office.

Due Dates for Property Tax Payments

The required first installment must be paid to the appropriate town or village treasurer by January 31. The county treasurer cannot accept current year tax payments due by January 31.  As a result, telephone and online payment options to the county are deactivated during December and January.

The required second installment, if applicable, must be paid to the Burnett County Treasurer by July 31.

Property tax bills are mailed in December by the town/village treasurer. The tax bill states if payment in full is required by January 31, or if the payment may be paid in two installments. If you choose to pay in two installments and do not make both payments by the due dates of January 1 and July 31, the unpaid tax becomes delinquent as of February 1 and accrues interest at a rate of 1% per month until the tax is paid in full.
