Rate Change for Stockholm, Wisconsin, October 2014


 Stockholm (Wisconsin, not Sweden).

Under Wisconsin law, municipalities and counties meeting certain criteria may impose a premier resort area tax. In most cases, the tax may only be imposed when at least 40% of the equalized value of the taxable property within the municipality or county is used by tourism-related retailers. However, there are exceptions to this rule.

Both Bayfield and Eagle River may impose a premier resort area tax even if less than 40% of the equalized value of the taxable property within the cities is used by tourism-related retailers.

The following localities may also impose a premier resort area tax even if less than 40% of the equalized value of the taxable property is used by tourism-related retailers, provided the tax is approved by voters:

  • Ephraim
  • Sister Bay
  • Stockholm

Voters in the Village of Stockholm have approved the imposition of the premier resort area tax. As a result, the 0.5% tax will take effect October 1, 2014.
