Researching Taxes in the Town of Fern, Wisconsin:
There are three ways that you can find out how much money you owe on your tax bill.

1. Florence County website available at www.florencecountywi.com (or click here to go directly to the site)

On the right side of the page you will see "Florence County Quicklinks." Click on the 4th item on the list "Property Tax Records." Here you can search by name or by parcel number. Once you have the correct record, select "taxes" on the left side of the page. Make sure that you select the proper tax year to see the amount due. Information is available about 1 week after tax bills have been distributed by the county treasurer to the township clerks. This is usually the first or second week of December.  


2. You can call the Town of Fern Treasurer.  Please note that the Town Treasurer has a regular full-time job, so she will most likely not be available to answer the phone during the day.  After February 1, the County Treasurer will have the most up-to-date and complete records for the current year's taxes.


3. You can investigate tax amounts from the County Treasurer office located at 400 Lake Avenue, Florence, WI . Phone 715-528-3204. County Treasurer’s office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. Lunch is from 12:00 to 12:30.


Making Payments:
When making payments please have correct payment amount. Include parcel # on check stub with disbursement amount. Limit the # of parcels to 10 to be included on one tax payment. Give clear and accurate disbursement instructions for check amount. Checks will be returned if disbursement is inaccurate. Overpayments are refunded to the property owner after board approval and check has cleared bank.
