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.

Payment Drop-Box

There is a drop box located outside City Hall on the lower level parking lot. Put your payment in an envelope and place it in the drop box any time of the day or night. Payments received in the box by the due date are considered paid on time. Please do not place cash in the drop box.

Credit Card Payments (Not accepted at City Hall)

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 - 2.8875% of the amount charged

If you are having technical difficulties please contact Official Pay Customer Service at 1-800-487-4567.  Please note that City of New Berlin staff will not be able to troubleshoot and issues with online or phone payments.
