Paying your Property Taxes

Village of Cottage Grove property owners can expect to receive their property tax bills in early to mid-December.  Because of the deductibility of property tax on federal income taxes, many property owners pay the entire bill by December 31.  However, all that is required is that the first installment be paid by January 31.  The first installment is usually about one half of the total due and is paid directly to the Village of Cottage Grove.

Village Hall accepts cash, check or money order.  Credit cards are also accepted but need to go through a third party vendor Payment Services Network.  You may access this payment option by clicking here or by calling 1-877-885-7968.  (Please note there is an additional fee if paying by credit card).

You may also drop payment after hours in the drop box located just to the right of the front door outside Village Hall.  If you need a receipt, include a self-addressed stamped envelope, and we will mail you back a receipt.
