Substitute resolution relating to delinquent property tax interest and penalties.
This resolution directs the City Treasurer to waive interest and penalty charges on an outstanding property tax balance owed by a taxpayer on the property tax installment payment program between April 1 and September 30, 2020.

The resolution further finds every Milwaukee taxpayer has, and is, experiencing economic hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and is therefore eligible for a waiver.
