Tax Payment Methods
*If mailing or presenting a mortgage escrow check, the reverse side of the check must be endorsed by any additional parties listed on the Pay To line of the check. (Often, mortgage companies issue checks to be made payable to the City of Waukesha and the homeowner). If the check lists both spouses, both must sign the check.
1. At any Waukesha State Bank
For your convenience, tax payments can be made in person at any Waukesha State Bank branch (including drive-thru service with exact payment).
In most cases, the bank can provide immediate change up to $500 for escrow check overages. Over payments made at City Hall will be refunded by mail.
*Customers paying at the bank must present the payment coupon from the tax bill. You do not need to have an account with the bank to make your tax payment.
Make Checks Payable to: CITY OF WAUKESHA
2. City Hall Depository
Payments deposited in the City's depository will be processed
the next business day. Please enclose payment stub with payment. A receipt will be mailed if you check on your stub that you would like a receipt.
