The Town of Stockton contracts with Pauls and Associates, Inc. to assess the property and personal property of all parcels in the Town of Stockton. If you have a question about the assessed value of your property, please contact them at (715) 848-9300.
The Mill Rate
The property tax rate is often given as a percentage. It may also be expressed as a per mil (amount of tax per thousand dollars of property value), which is also known as a millage rate or mill is also one-thousandth of a dollar.) To calculate the property tax, the authority will multiply the assessed value of the property by the mill rate and then divide by 1,000. Mill rates can vary within a municipality based on the taxing authorities that apply to individual properties, such as public school districts or technical college districts.
For example, a property with an assessed value of $50,000 located in the Town of Stockton (School District - Stevens Point) with a mill rate of $16.96 mills would have a property tax bill of $848.00 per year.
Your Property tax dollar is split up between the State, Portage County, the Town of Stockton, the Public and Vocational School Districts your property is located in.
Board of Review and Open Book
Each summer the town holds an "Open Book" and Board of Review sessions for residents to ask questions about the valuation of their property. Watch the Town newsletter for the date and time of the next session or call the Town Clerk.
Tax bills are calculated and mailed in December of each year. Payments are to be made directly to the Portage County Treasurer. The Town of Stockton does not accept payment of property tax bills.

Did you ever wonder how Stockton measures up in comparison to other local municipalities?
Below are a few of our surrounding municipalities and their 2015 mill rates. The mill rate is the amount of tax payable per dollar of the assessed value of a property. The mill rate is based on "mills"; as each mill is one-thousandth of a currency unit; one mill is equivalent to one-tenth of a cent or $0.001.
The overall mill rate is comprised of mill rates associated with the state, county, local, school district, and vocational school district mill rates.
The portion of your property taxes that actually ends up in our local Town of Stockton is a very small amount of the overall portion of your tax bill. In the example below, this is what you would have if you lived in the Town of Stockton, Tomorrow River & Mid-State Technical School District.
