Property Tax Information and Payments

You can view your property tax information online through Sauk County's Ascent Land Records System.  You can obtain assessment values, property tax information, and download copies of your tax bills.  Tax bills are published annually before December 15th as required per state statute.


View property information, taxes, and obtain payment receipts by visiting Sauk County Ascent Land Records 

  • When searching Ascent Land Records, select the municipality "Town of Merrimac", then search by Last name.  If the property is in a trust, enter the first word of the trust name in the last name field.  You can also search by tax parcel number, street number, or street name.  It is easiest if you only search using one field. 

  • If you have lost your bill, or have not received it, you can print a copy online by using the "Select Detail" field and  "Taxes" from the dropped down menu.  Next to "Print Tax Bills", select the appropriate year. 

  • If you need a receipt, click on the appropriate year under the "Tax Year" field under "Tax History".

On-Line Payments


The town only collects 1st installments, or for payment in full, through January 31st.  The town's payment link will only be operation during tax collection time.  Payments are posted the same they they are received.  Payments mailed prior to December 31st and January 31st prior to the cutoff dates for tax purposes and/or to avoid late penalties.  Please  DO NOT pay your tax bill until you have either received it or you can download a copy of your statement from Sauk County.  Make sure you pay the correct amount, shortages may result in the entire bill being delinquent.


Property tax payments and address changes are not uploaded to the county until February 15th of the year but are credited the same day they are received.  Payments received in the mail after the December 31st or January 31st deadlines are credited for the day they are postmarked. 


Payments made after January 31st of the year are payable to the Sauk County Treasurer and can also be paid on-line through their website.
