Welcome to the Town of Dunn, Dane County, WI

Town Business During COVID-19

In response to the current COVID-19 situation and in accordance with recommendations from Dane County Public Health, social distancing measures are being practiced. Our foremost priority is to protect the health and safety of the Town of Dunn’s residents and employees from coronavirus.

Town services are happening in new ways. Whenever possible, we will assist by email, phone, conference call, or online video meetings. The Town has a drop off/pick-up window for exchange of documents and signatures that are available by appointment.  Please call ahead or contact the appropriate staff member by email: staff contact list.

This is a rapidly changing situation and we appreciate your support and understanding during this time.

Waiver of Penalty and Interest for Some Property Tax Payments

If you choose to pay your 2019 real estate taxes in two installments, the second installment due date is July 31, and payment is made to the Dane County Treasurer, which has not changed. (Dane County Treasurer: P.O. Box 1299, Madison, WI 53701-1299). However, in response to COVID-19, the Town of Dunn, together with other municipalities in Dane County, adopted a Resolution allowing the County Treasurer to temporarily waive interest and penalty for tax installments due after April 1, 2020. The County can waive interest and penalty until October 1, 2020. This means that the Town of Dunn property owners who make their second installment payment after the July 31 deadline will not be assessed penalty or interest until October 1, 2020.
