Property Tax Payments
Oneida County's Land Information Office was experiencing a delay in processing deeds which resulted in many property sales not being reflected on this year's tax bills. If you purchased property after 8/1/22 you will need to get the tax bill from the seller. Please refer to Oneida County's memo HERE.
Some residents will notice an additional $5.00 POWTS (Private On-site Wastewater Treatment System) fee added to their tax bill. Oneida County added the $5.00 fee to help cover their cost of administering the POWTS permitting and inspections. Oneida County's Resolution 39-2021 regarding this new yearly maintenance program fee can be found HERE. If you are looking for more information or have questions, please call the Oneida County Planning & Zoning Office at 715-369-6130.
