Milwaukee offers new locations for paying property tax bills
MILWAUKEE -- City officials are offering taxpayers a new way to take care of their property tax bills this year.
Through the new Pay at the Bank program, residents can pay their property taxes at 13 US Bank locations in the city.
Alderman Jim Bohl and City Treasurer Spencer Coggs will hold a joint news conference at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday to discuss the details. They say this alternative will help clear long lines and reduce staffing costs at City Hall.
One does not need to be a customer of US Bank to participate in the program, but taxpayers will need to bring their entire tax bill with them.
Checks should be made payable to the City of Milwaukee. US Bank tellers will stamp a payment acknowledgment onthe tax bill. The City Treasurer's Office will then mail out an official tax payment receipt for all bank branch payments within five working days of payment processing.
Bank branches will not issue tax refunds, nor will they accept payments on prior year delinquent tax accounts.
