You will be able to pay your Milwaukee property taxes with a credit card! Gee, golly, gosh, oh my, isn't that exciting?
And all you have to do to take advantage of this stupendous offer is cough up a 2.5% "convenience" fee! That's an extra $75 on a a $3,000 tax bill, or $150 on a $6,000 tax bill.
What is the extra convenience that the payer of the $6,000 bill gets that makes it worth twice the convenience fee? Is it legal, or should we call the vice squad?
No, thanks, City Hall. We'll pay by mail, for the price of a 41-cent stamp.
