Public Improvement Fee at Belmar


The City of Lakewood no longer mails Sales Tax and PIF returns effective January 1st, 2016. Please create an online profile via Lakewood Business Pro to print your return forms or to file your returns electronically.             


The Public Improvement Fee (PIF) is collected and used to finance a portion of the cost of public improvements at Belmar.

The PIF at Belmar is 2.5% on all sales transactions, as defined in the PIF Covenant. The PIF is a fee and NOT a tax; therefore, it becomes a part of the total sales price and is subject to sales tax.

At Belmar, the combined sales tax rate of 5.5% is to be collected on the total taxable purchase price. Upon an annual review, the City sales tax rate may be subject to change. Deliveries made within the City of Lakewood, but outside Belmar, are subject to the 3.0% City sales tax.



If your event will be held at Belmar, please contact the Public Improvement Fee Section to obtain the correct PIF and tax rate information.
