Treasurer

Financial Services to Support County Government for the Benefit of Its Citizens

What We Do

The Treasurer acts as the County's banker, receiving and disbursing all funds as provided by state law and county ordinances; providing for daily cash requirements of Milwaukee County, and investing public funds not used for daily operations. The Treasurer's Office also collects delinquent property or real estate taxes in 18 of the County's 19 suburban municipalities as required by State Statutes. The County Treasurer also maintains property tax data.

Unclaimed Funds

Unclaimed funds are funds held by the Treasurer's Office for an owner or recipient who is entitled to the money, but who has failed to claim ownership of it. Unclaimed funds may arise out of a variety of circumstances. For example, delivery of a payment may not be possible because of incorrect or incomplete address information for the recipient. Milwaukee County, as custodians of these funds, has established policies and procedures for holding, safeguarding and accounting for these funds. Some examples of such funds include:

  • Program/Services Payments
  • Jury Duty Checks
  • Bail Money
  • Overpayment

Tax Credit for Veterans

Property tax credit is available to eligible disabled veterans and surviving spouses. The credit is equal to the property taxes paid on eligible veteran's or surviving spouse's principal dwelling in Wisconsin.

The program has been in effect since tax year 2005. Through tax year 2008, the veteran had to have been a resident of Wisconsin at the time he/she entered active duty, have a 100% schedular rated service-connected disability, and be 65 years of age or older. Surviving spouses of veterans who met the foregoing criteria also qualified.

However, beginning with tax year 2009, the age restriction has been removed. Veterans need now only be residents of Wisconsin for five continous years, and their 100% service-connected disability rating can now be obtained through individual unemployability. Surviving spouses of eligible veterans also qualify.

Wisconsin Lottery and Gaming Credit

To qualify for the lottery and gaming credit, you must be a Wisconsin resident, the owner of the dwelling, and use the dwelling as your primary residence as of the certification date (January 1 of the year in which the property taxes are levied). A property owner may claim only one primary residence.

Application forms related to the Lottery and Gaming Credit Program must be sent to your municipality, not to the Milwaukee County Treasurer.
