Property Tax Bills

Property Tax bills are mailed out on or by October 10, after the Treasurer’s office receives the tax roll from the Assessors office. Tax bills are itemized to show:
  • Name and address of property owner as of January 1 of the tax year
  • Amount due
  • Due date of each installment
  • Distribution of tax throughout the county
  • Legal description of property
If you purchase a property or record a deed on or after January 1, you will not receive a tax bill in your name for that year. Please note that taxpayers are responsible for payment of taxes regardless of billing. Even if you did not receive a tax bill for any reason, taxes are still due, and additional penalties will be assessed if paid late.

If you do not receive a tax bill by the end of October, or if you have any questions, please contact the Treasurer's office at (307) 332-1105.

Other Information

What is a mill levy?

A mill is one one-thousandth (1/1000) of a dollar. Therefore there is $1 of tax for every thousand dollars of assessed value.

Who can assess taxes on my property?

Various entities are legally entitled to charge mills against properties in their districts subject to the limits provided by Wyoming law. These include local government, school districts, colleges and other legally-formed special districts. Certain taxing entities are entitled to assess taxes on all properties within Fremont County, regardless of tax district. Therefore, the total mill levy varies from tax district to tax district depending on the taxing entities included in your specific district. The Fremont County Treasurer maintains a table showing the approved mill levies for all tax districts within Fremont County for the current tax year. In addition, the Fremont County Assessor maintains historical information on assessed valuations and mill levies on their Forms page.
