Stevens Point taxpayers can expect tax bill to rise next year
After the completion of a citywide revaluation of properties, Stevens Point taxpayers may want to start planning for an increase to their tax bill.
Stevens Point Mayor Mike Wiza said he wanted to get the word our early to help residents better prepare for possible increases.
“Everybody’s going to probably take a decent-sized hit next year. I calculated (my home value) and based on my estimates, the revaluation will be about another $600 on my tax bill. That’s significant if A: I escrow; or B: I’m on a fixed income. If I don’t know that going into the beginning of the year, I can’t start saving for that extra (money) and come mid-December (2017) I have two weeks to come up with it,” Wiza said.
