Impact Fees

Impact fees are fees charged by a municipality to a developer or builder in order to generate revenue for funding capital improvements. In the Spring of 1994, Wisconsin state statue section 66.0617 was created by the state legislature to specify the process for implementing impact fees. The statute also includes language that details how municipalities must identify the correlation between the service provided and the amount charged. State statute section 66.0617 is quite clear in defining the types of capital improvements for which municipalities can charge impact fees.
