For everyone’s safety and protection due to COVID-19, below are the following options to pay water bills, tax bills, and miscellaneous invoices to the Berkley Treasurer’s Office:

  • Payment By Check or Money Order:
    • In-person (Note: Social distancing measures are in place at City Hall; You may experience a longer wait time. If you are turning in any city-related documents or materials, please be sure to have the paperwork filled out ahead of time)
    • Payment utilizing the City Hall dropbox located on the East side of City Hall to the right of the entrance door. Please place the remittance copy of your taxes, miscellaneous invoices, or water bill in an envelope with your check or money order.
      • If you would like a receipt sent to you, please also enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope in the envelope with your bill and payment, and we will mail you a receipt. If you do not include a self-addressed stamped envelope in with your payment we will assume you will use your copy of the check or money order as your receipt.
  • Payment By Cash:
    • As are now open to the public, we are now accepting cash at the Treasurer's counter again. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE CASH IN THE DROPBOX. 
      • (Note: Social distancing measures are in place at City Hall; You may experience a longer wait time. If you are turning in any city-related documents or materials, please be sure to have the paperwork filled out ahead of time)

    • The best and most time-efficient option for Property Transfer Affidavit forms is to scan or take a clear picture of all of the signed forms and email them to treasury@berkleymich.net. Those forms will then be processed and a date-stamped copy will be scanned and returned to you via your email address.
    • Tax Deferment forms and any required documentation can also be scanned or a clear picture is taken and emailed to the email address above.
    • Another option for sending in these forms is to place the signed documents in an envelope and place them in the dropbox for processing by the Treasurer’s Office. Please make sure all forms are properly signed and leave an email address to scan and return copies of the stamped forms.
    • Lastly, you may also leave a self-addressed stamped envelope if you want hard copies returned by US mail (City of Berkley Treasurer; 3338 Coolidge Hwy Berkley, MI 48072).
