FAQ’s Regarding the Amended Tax Bills | 05/23/2017

Q: I received an amended tax bill from Calumet County.  Is this a scam?
A: It is not a scam. The Village Board authorized the County Treasurer’s office to issue amended tax bills due to a clerical error in the computation of the final tax roll. The additional amount due is listed in the bottom right corner of the bill and is due by July 31st. Please mail payments to 206 Court St., Chilton WI 53014.
 
Q: Did everyone in the village receive an amended bill?
A: Yes, each parcel owner that received a tax bill in December 2016 has been issued an amended bill.
 
Q: How did this happen and whose fault is this?
A: The error is specific to the calculation of the TID value increment. The apportioned levies that were used for Calumet County, Village of Harrison, Kimberly School District, and Fox Valley Technical College did not include the adjusted TID value increment. There is no single person at fault in the error; it was a misunderstanding of how the TID information reported to the WI Dept. of Revenue is shared with all of the jurisdictions.
 
Q: Why wasn’t I notified of this?
A: The error on the tax roll was discussed at the January 13th, February 28th, and March 28th village board meetings. The Times-Villager newspaper also reported on the error and the amended tax bills. The village’s website at www.harrison-wi.org has had information regarding the amended taxes posted since mid-January.
 
Q: Was it really necessary to send out amended bills? The amount due on my  bill is relatively small.
A:  In total, the error resulted in a shortfall of $265,337.22 that was part of the approved budget.
 

Conceptual Plans for the Manitowoc Road park site | 05/23/2017

Conceptual Plans for the Manitowoc Road park site. 
Ayres Associates, consultants for the park master plan, held a public meeting at the end of April to solicit public input on the development of the future park along Manitowoc Road, between County N and Coop Road.  The three conceptual plans are a result of the public charrette, which was a group exercise where residents drew on maps the preferred location of ball fields, pavilions, and other park improvements.  Please view the conceptual plans and make comments at the following website: http://www.saa-madison.com/community-comment/harrison-manitowoc-road-park-master-plan.

2016 TAX BILLS TO BE RE-ISSUED | 05/22/2017

UPDATE (MAY 22 2017) ADJUSTED TAX BILLS HAVE BEEN MAILED
(FROM JANUARY 19 2017) 2016 Tax Bills to be Re-Issued

The Village of Harrison, in conjunction with the Calumet County Treasurer’s Office, will re-issue the 2016 Tax Bills due to a clerical error in the computation of the tax roll. Levy amounts related to the TID were not accurately reported and they must be corrected.
Residents in the Appleton, Kaukauna, Hilbert, and Stockbridge School Districts will see a $0.19 increase per thousand of your assessed value (a $38.00 increase on a $200,000 home).
Residents in the Kimberly School District will see a $0.43 increase per thousand of your assessed value (an $86.00 increase on a $200,000 home).
At this time, we do not know when the revised bills will be mailed out. The County Treasurer is working with the database programmers and we should have an answer soon.
We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience this error has caused and we are working closely with the County and State to ensure this does not happen in the future.
