The Department of Assessment is responsible for developing fair and equitable assessments for all property located in the City of Sheboygan.  In developing assessments we discover, list, and value all taxable property (this information is used to create the annual assessment roll).  The department adheres to established laws as set forth in the Wisconsin Statutes, and the staff is certified by the Wisconsin Department of Revenue to perform their duties.

If you do not find the information you need on this web site or feel a mistake has been made in valuing your property, please contact our office.

The valuation of residential land is based on effective frontage and effective depth.  A depth factor is applied on those lots greater or less than 120 feet in depth.  The square footage displayed with the parcel information does not determine residential land value
Commercial land is generally valued using the square footage of the land area.
