Tamim accepted a Level Two breach of the ICC Code of Conduct after he was charged for a "shoulder nudge" on McCullum during New Zealand's first innings.
The ICC confirmed Tamim's sanction after the final day was washed out by rain, leaving the two-match series drawn.
"The left-handed opener was found to have breached Article 2.2.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to 'inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between players in the course of play during an international match'," the statement read.
"The charge had been laid by the on-field umpires Richard Illingworth and Bruce Oxenford.
"The incident happened at the end of the 24th over in New Zealand's first innings when Tamim, while moving to his new fielding position at mid-on, gave a shoulder nudge to Brendan McCullum.
"Tamim accepted the charge without any protest and admitted that he was guilty of the offence.
"All Level 2 breaches carry a minimum penalty of a minimum fine of 50 per cent of applicable Match Fee and/or up to two Suspension Points."
