Greetings!  2021 property tax statement(s) along with the information on licensing your dog(s) have been mailed.  You are still responsible for the tax even if you do not receive the statement in the mail. 

RECEIPTS:  We will NOT automatically mail back you a receipt unless you provide us with a self-addressed, stamped envelope.  If we do not receive a self-addressed, stamped envelope, your cancelled check will be your receipt.

TAX ROLL:  We will NOT be mailing out a tax roll with your statement(s) due to costs.  The tax roll is the report that lists all of the names and property tax amounts for the Town of Garfield.  You can go the Polk County web site www.co.polk.wi.usand retrieve the information you need.

LOTTERY CREDIT:  Lottery Credits are given to Town of Garfield residents by the State.  To qualify to receive a Lottery Credit, one MUST BE a legal resident of Wisconsin and MUST NOT be receiving a Lottery Credit from another Town in Wisconsin or another state.  To receive the Lottery Credit this year, you must fill out, sign, and return the Lottery Credit form to the Treasurer by January 31.  If it is returned after January 31, you will get the Lottery Credit on the 2022 tax statement.  You can obtain a Lottery Credit form from the Treasurer, the County Treasurer or on-line at our website.  This does not cost you anything; you just have to fill out a form.  If you are already receiving a Lottery Credit you do NOT need to fill another one out.

If you have a different mailing address than the property address on the tax statement and are receiving a Lottery Credit, names will be given to County to verify.

Boat Launch Permits & Shelter Rental:  Boat launch permits for 2022 are available for $25.  There is a $5 daily boat launch fee for both the Lake Wapogasset Park and Sunrise Beach.  Shelter reservations are being accepted.  The large riverside shelter is $50 and the smaller lakeside shelter is $40.  Please call the Clerk for more information or visit our web site at www.townofgarfield.comand download the form(s).

DOG LICENSES:  When filling out the Dog License Application regarding the dog(s) rabies vaccinations please send a copy of the Rabies Certification from your veterinarian.  The Rabies Certification has the RABIES information I need.  This is your responsibility to produce information requested by the State of Wisconsin.  The bottom part of the yellow sheet needs to be signed and returned with rabies verification and the cost of the license fee (a $25 late fee applies if paid after April 1).

For any dog that is sold, given away, or has died since you have purchased your last dog license, you will need to fill out an Affidavit of Death or Disposal of Dog Certificate, per Wis. Stats. 174.  If you need one, you can call to request one, download one from our website, or stop in and pick one up at the Town Hall.
