Evers signs bill affecting building permits, late property taxes


MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) — Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers signed Senate Bill 254, which affects building permit holders and late property tax payments.
The bill, which Evers signed Friday and now is known as 2021 Wisconsin Act 80, allows holders of some unexpired construction or building permits or approvals to seek extensions in some circumstances. At issue are permits that are subject to administrative, judicial or appellate proceedings that could lead to their invalidation, reconsideration or modification.
Act 80 also allows taxation districts to waive interest and penalties on late 2021 property tax payments. It also adds a timely payment requirement for filing certain property tax claims if payment was submitted by Oct. 1 this year.
