Delinquent tax warrants are filed with the Circuit Court by the State of Wisconsin on behalf of the Department of Revenue and the Department of Workforce Development (DWD). They are filed in the county in which the individual resides, where the property is located, or where the business operates or operated. The different types of warrants filed include:
Most tax warrants filed since 1997 can be found electronically at http://wcca.wicourts.gov/. If you are unable to locate a warrant electronically that was issued as early as 1987, you may go to Room C-167 of the Waukesha County Courthouse to review a hard copy of the warrant. The releases, withdrawals, and satisfactions of such warrants are filed the same way.
