Is Your New Year's Resolution to Quit Smoking?

A new study is giving people in the Milwaukee and Madison area up to $260, 3 months of Chantix pills or nicotine patches, and coaching to help quit smoking.  Cigarette smoking remains the chief preventable cause of disease and death in the United States, killing approximately 500,000 Americans per year.  To volunteer for the study, visit http://www.endcigs.com/ or call 1-877-END-CIGS.  That's 1-877-363-2447.

Alert for Property Owners with Escrow Accounts

A third party information source has provided incorrect information on Franklin property tax bills to 55 different banks involving 1,540 properties.  If you are one of 1,540 property owners that received a check for only the first installment rather than the entire tax bill, contact your bank regarding the balance of the escrow distribution plans.  The City provided correct information, this third party processor caused the error.

Tax payment is the responsibility of the property owner.  This City does not get involved between the property owner and their bank escrow arrangement.  Some banks are choosing to send the balance of the tax payment directly to the City.  You can monitor your tax bill online via the City's website.  Tax payments are posted to accounts shortly after receiving them.  Follow the instructions on the green sheet enclosure with the tax bill to locate payment information on the City's website or click here for a copy.   



2017 Property Tax Information

Property tax bills were mailed out Friday, December 15th, and are also available via the Property Tax Web Portal on the City of Franklin website.  These property tax bills will reflect the total property taxes to be collected from all of the taxing jurisdictions, including the school districts and Milwaukee County.  Under the law, the City is required to collect the property tax for 7 different taxing jurisdictions.  The City of Franklin is directly responsible for only approximately one-quarter of the total property tax charges.  Click here for complete property tax rate and tax facts information.  To pay your property taxes online, click here
