Real Property Tax Info


2014-15 property tax per assessed value

The Village of Lakewood portion of taxes ($7.48 per thousand) goes towards the Fire Dept, Police Dept, DPW, Street Lighting, and Garbage collection as just a few examples.

2014-15 Lakewood budget figures

Chapter 258 of the Laws of 2008 added Section 495 to the Real Property Tax Law requiring counties, cities, towns, villages and school districts to attach to their tentative/preliminary budgets an exemption report. The measure is effective October 5, 2008 and applies to budgets for fiscal years commencing on and after that date.

The new exemption reports will provide taxpayers, policy makers, media and the general public with greater transparency on property tax exemptions and their effect on overall property taxes.

View exemption report here.
