Acceptable Payment Methods
In Person or by Mail
The Finance Department accepts checks, money orders, cashier's checks, traveler's checks, and cash as payment.
Credit Card Payments
Taxes and utility bills can be paid by credit card; however, this must be done online or by phone. Because the cost to the city would be prohibitive and result in an increase to your taxes, we do not accept credit / debit card payments at City Hall.
Official Payments makes credit card payments available to you online or by phone at (888) 2PAY-TAX or 888-272-9829. Official Payments is not affiliated with the City of New Berlin. At their payment screen, be prepared to enter:
- Payment type (either tax or utility)
- Wisconsin, New Berlin
- Your jurisdiction code (5801)
Be sure to remain online, or on the phone until you are given a confirmation code. This will be needed for tracking purposes in the event of an error. Official Payments charges a fee based on the amount you charge. Fees are:
- Utility bills - $7.45 per transaction
- Tax bills:
- $0.01 to $9,999.99 - 2.8875% of the amount charged
- $10,000 or more - 2.8875% of the amount charged
