When Taxes are Due & How They are Paid
Property Taxes in Wyoming become due and are billed on September 1 of each year. Taxes may be paid either in halves or in full.
If Paid in Halves
The first half of the taxes become delinquent on November 11. The second half of the taxes become delinquent on May 11 of the subsequent year.
If Paid in Full
The entire tax amount must be paid by December 31. For example, the 2015 taxes are billed on September 1, 2015. The first half of the taxes must be postmarked by November 10th, and the second half must be postmarked by May 10, 2016. However, if the entire tax is paid by December 31, 2015, all the interest on the first half is waived.
You will not receive a receipt for your property tax payment unless requested. If you want a receipt, please attach a note with your payment requesting one. If you would like to request a receipt now, please contact our office.
If a mortgage company pays your taxes there will be a message in the upper left hand corner of the tax bill reading: "A duplicate billing has been requested by your mortgage company to make a payment." Even if your mortgage company pays your taxes, you will still receive a tax notice on September 1 of each year. This notice is for your records.
Each year mortgage companies request the information on property tax accounts in which they hold mortgages on. The Treasurer's Office sends them the information by a report or in electronic format. Mortgage companies remit the tax payments in November and May. By law, they are required to pay your taxes in the maximum number of payments allowed by the state. Therefore, they do not have the option of paying your taxes all at once.
