Opt in to pay your FY 22 Supreme Court assessments and State Bar dues over six months: Sign up by early January.
Dec. 2, 2020 – State Bar of Wisconsin members again have the option to pay their Supreme Court assessments and State Bar dues for next fiscal year over a six-month period.
“Paying in installments allows members – particularly those working in small-firm or government settings – a means to better manage their finances, spreading payments over a six-month period,” said State Bar President Kathy Brost.
The prepayment plan allows you to spread your fiscal year 2022 Supreme Court assessments and State Bar dues payment over six months, beginning in January 2021. Fiscal year 2022 covers July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022. Statements are typically sent out in early May, with payments due by July 1.
To enroll in the plan, you must sign up by Jan. 8, 2021.
The Prepayment Plan: What You Need to Know
Active, inactive, and judicial members can participate.
Enroll in the plan by completing the payment agreement and payment authorization form by Jan. 8, 2021.
The first installment payment occurs in January.
Payments are made in five equal installments (January through May).
Participants will make the sixth final payment through the State Bar’s online payment portal. This allows them to update their records, sign and submit their trust account certificate online, join optional sections and divisions, and, if desired, apply the Keller dues reduction and donate to the Wisconsin Law Foundation.
Law firms participating in firm billing will continue to pay their assessments and dues through that process.
