The city of Marshfield website collects online payments. The easiest way to access the online payment screen is to access the city of Marshfield website, ci.marshfield.wi.us, followed by selecting the floating money bag icon labeled “Pay Online.”
There will be a bill payment form to complete. Selecting the “Payment Type” drop-down, the options presented will be Ambulance Fees, Clerk Fees, Library Fees, Marathon County – Personal Property Tax, Marathon County – Real Estate Tax, Municipal Court Fines, Parking Facility Payment, Wood County – Personal Property Tax, and Wood County – Real Estate Tax.
The required information will change depending on your payment type. For example, if “Wood County – Real Estate Tax” is selected, you would be prompted to provide Property Address, Parcel Number, and Amount.
Once you have completed this section, you may click the “Add additional items to cart” link to add additional items. When you are done with all the payment items, you may move on to complete the “Cardholder Information” and the “Payment Information” sections.
