Wyoming law requires that the Treasurer’s Office send a tax bill to all property owners. If taxes are paid by a mortgage company, the notice is just for the owner’s information. All mortgage companies and tax services with accounts in Converse County receive the tax roll electronically. Keep the bill for your records. Mortgage companies will be notified separately.
Wyoming law requires that tax notices be sent to the owner of record as of January 1st of the tax year. Since these are the 2022 taxes, they were sent to the owner as of January 1, 2022. When property is sold after January 1, there is usually some arrangement between the seller and buyer regarding who owes what part of the current year property taxes. The new owner will also receive a tax bill in most cases.
We only send out property taxes statements once a year in September, with 1st half and 2nd half stubs enclosed.
As between the grantor and grantee of any property where there is no express agreement in writing as to which party shall pay the taxes that may be assessed on the property, if the property is conveyed on or after January 1, the grantor shall pay the taxes for that year. If there is an agreement between the two parties then obey by the agreement.
There's a line in the valuation area of the notice in the upper right corner that says "Less Veteran Exemption." If there is an amount there (usually 3,000), a veteran exemption was applied to the account. To calculate the actual dollars applied, take the amount on the veteran exemption line, multiply it by the Total Mills from the levy section and divide by 1,000. (for example, 3000 X 57.900 / 1000 = $173.70 actual tax reduction)
The County Assessor has the responsibility to assign a taxable value to all tax accounts.Therefore, you must get in contact with the Assessor’s Office for explanation. All taxpayers should have received a tax assessment in April, though, notifying them of the upcoming taxable value.
Wyoming laws dictate how many “mills” each taxing entity is allowed to assess for property taxes.We collect the tax and forward it to those entities. If you want more information about how that money is spent, you should contact that particular taxing authority.
