Milwaukee City Hall

MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee residents, your property tax bills are in the mail. City Treasurer Spencer Coggs announced more than 160,000 property tax bills were mailed out on Friday afternoon, December 9th.

Officials say most taxpayers will receive their property tax bills no later than Wednesday, December 14th. Taxpayers that do not receive their property tax bills by Wednesday should contact the City Treasurer’s Office, Customer Services Division, at 414-286-2240, and request a duplicate tax bill. Tax bill copies are also available at no charge on the Office of the City Treasurer website.

Treasurer Coggs strongly urges taxpayers to avoid the parking challenges around City Hall and any long lines for service that may arise inside City Hall. He suggests taxpayers:

  • Mail in their tax payments using the return remittance envelope enclosed with their tax bills
  • Make their tax payments at any one of twelve, full service US Bank branches located within the City of Milwaukee
  • Pay their taxes in full using the electronic payment options available on the Office of the City Treasurer website.
  • Enroll in the electronic funds transfer installment payment plan. The enrollment form is available on the Office of the City Treasurer website.

    Shouldn’t pay rent to the government, the government doesn’t own your land…so illegal and unconstitutional but you sheeple are so brainwashed! But I own my house! Yeah, don’t pay the bill in three years and find out who really owns it, duh! Happy I pay rent!

    • Fact Checker

      Your landlord pays the property taxes for you, they are part of your rent. Your landlord also hopes to make a profit – why would he bother renting to you otherwise. And I am sure you like the roads, bridges, schools, parks traffic lights, snow plowing service and trash removal that is paid for all our tax money. And if one of us does not pay taxes, the rest of us has to make up for it. So I am glad your landlord pays taxes for you and I don’t have to chip in for your.
