Special Assessment

Special assessments and charges are levied for improvements made and services provided to real property.  They are considered to be liens against the property and are due from the property itself, regardless of ownership.  Special assessments and charges are billed during the year and, if unpaid, become part of the real estate tax bill issued to the property.

One request must be filed for each parcel you are seeking information for.  You cannot make a request for more than one (1) parcel within each request.  This can be done online by clicking on the blue “Apply Online” box.

This standard form provides information available at the City of Sun Prairie City Hall, concerning the subject property as of the date(s) noted, and is supplied at your request. It is understood that this form is issued subject to errors and omissions and shall not be binding upon the City of Sun Prairie. In accordance with Sec. 19.35, Wisconsin Statutes, you are entitled to examine the public records in the following offices and verify the information to the person’s own satisfaction.
