Delinquent Tax Accounts

Lists of all delinquent real estate and personal property tax accounts are available. This data will be updated monthly on or about the 10th day of each month, after the close of each monthly cycle.

The first file contains all Delinquent Real Estate Tax Accounts. The data is sorted by tax account number by levy year. This allows multiple, delinquent levy year tax accounts for a single parcel to be listed contiguously. ONLY THE DELINQUENT TAX PRINCIPAL AMOUNTS ARE LISTED. The full payment amount due on a delinquent real estate tax account will always include accrued tax interest and penalty charges, but may also include accrued judgment interest where a judgment has been taken. If a tax account has an enforcement status of 5K or 6K, the full payment due amount can be ascertained by contacting the City of Milwaukee's authorized collection agent, the Kohn Law Firm, at 414-276-0435. In all other cases, you may access the Current Tax Balance – Tax Search on our Web SIte, or call the Customer Services Division at 414-286-2240 for the full payment amount due.  

The second file contains all Delinquent Personal Property Tax Accounts. The data is sorted by tax account number by levy year.
