Public Improvement Fee at Creekside


Effective May 1st, 2013, the Creekside PIF schedule and City of Lakewood sales tax return must be filed together on a single return form. If you have not received your new forms or need additional information regarding this filing change, please contact the City of Lakewood Revenue Division.

It is recommended for PIF retailers to file/pay their returns online via Lakewood Business Pro to avoid filing errors.  



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

The PIF at Creekside Shopping Center is 1.5% on all sales transactions, as defined in the PIF Covenant. The PIF is a fee and NOT a tax; therefore, it becomes part of the total sales price and is subject to sales tax.

Please review the Creekside PIF Brochure for detailed information and examples.


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