Property Tax FAQ:

Q: When do I get my tax bill?

Tax notices are typically sent to all taxpayers on or before the last day of August. Some years it may be a little bit earlier, some may be a little later. Unfortunately, a few notices may get lost or are wrongly delivered. If you do not receive your tax notice by the middle of September, please call us at (307) 527-8630 and we will gladly send out copies.

Q. How do I read my tax bill?

You can see our Sample Bill with full details of the items on your Tax Notice.

Q. When are my taxes due?

Taxes are payable in two installments. The first installment is delinquent after November 10, and the second installment is delinquent after May 10 of the following year. The law does allow us to forgive the interest due on the first installment if you pay your entire year's tax on or before December 31.

Q. Why is the tax bill for my property in the previous owner's name?

Taxes are assessed to the owner of the property on January 1 of the tax year. If your property was purchased and the deed was recorded after January 1, it will appear in the old owner's name. Consequently, you may not receive a tax bill. Please call us at (307) 527-8630 and we will gladly send one to you.

Q. Why do I receive a bill for my property taxes when I have an escrow?

Many taxpayers have an escrow account from which their taxes are paid. Our office sends an electronic file of all the taxes to the mortgage companies upon their request. It is your mortgage companies responsibility to choose your taxes from the file and pay it. A tax bill is still sent as a courtesy to the customer for their records. Mortgage companies must make tax payments in halves in November and May. Feel free to call after the 15th of November and the 15th of May to see if your mortgage company has made payment for your taxes. This is especially important for those taxpayers that have irrigation that they think their mortgage company should be paying.

Q. A property that I don't own anymore is in the paper in MY NAME for      unpaid taxes.

Wyoming Statute 39-13-103 (b)(i)(A) "All taxable property shall be anually listed, valued and assessed for taxation in the county in which located and in the name of the owner of the property on January 1." The bill is sent to the person who was the deeded owner of the property as of January 1, the delinquent notice is sent to that same person, and the subsequent publication is in that name as well. If you receive the original tax billing in September, the only way to avoid having your name published is for the taxes to be paid. If you get the bill for property you sold, send the bill on to either the new owner or the closing company. If you get a delinquent notice, assume that unless action is taken in the near future your name will be in the paper.
