Additional Information

Payment Plans

The City of Lakewood Municipal Income Tax Division will extend payment arrangements for outstanding tax liabilities to taxpayers experiencing financial difficulties, under the following conditions:

  • All tax year filings (returns, exemptions, and/or extensions) must be current and up to date.
  • The monthly payment amount must be a minimum of $50.00 per month, or must be an amount extending the payment plan for no more than 12 months.
  • The monthly payment must be made via ACH (Automated ClearingHouse) Electronic Funds Transfer, whereby the payment can be deducted directly from a checking or savings account. The withdrawal date for monthly payments is the 22nd of each month, except for when that 22nd falls on a weekend or holiday—then the withdrawal will happen on the next business day.

NOTE: Personal checks and electronic fund transfers returned unpaid due to non-sufficient funds will be assessed a $30.00 fee.
