The Door County Treasurer collects tax payments/installments for the Town of Sevastopol. All payments should be made payable to: Door County Treasurer, 421 Nebraska Street, Sturgeon Bay WI 54235 (telephone: 920-746-2286).

The assessor of each municipality determines the assessed value of all real and personal property as of January 1st of each year. For example, the 2017 real estate property tax bill is as of 1/1/2017 and will be mailed to property owners in December 2017, with the first installment due on or before January 31st 2018 and the second installment due on or before July 31st 2018. The Town of Sevastopol contracts with Associated Appraisal Consultants, Inc., of Appleton, Wisconsin to provide assessment services. For assessment questions, you can call 1-800-721-4157, or you may complete an "Assessment Review Form" Request for Review of Property Assessment.pdf and submit it to our assessor. A member of the Associated Appraisal staff will contact you to arrange for an appointment and inspection of your property. Associated is a very familiar with Door County properties and the local real estate market; several Door County municipalities contract with them for assessment services.
