Late-payment penalties for property tax bills may be canceled

Late-payment penalties for property tax bills may be canceled

Lakewood property owners who are unable to pay their property taxes by the April 10 deadline due to the direct effect of the public health crisis, may submit an online request for penalty cancellation beginning April 11.

“We have no authority to extend the April 10 deadline, as outlined by State Law,” said Keith Knox, Los Angeles County Treasurer and Tax Collector. “But we are committed to helping in any way we can.”

The department has set up a special team to process requests for penalty cancellation for those who can demonstrate they were affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

County buildings are closed to the public at this time. You can still pay online, by telephone or by mail. Review payment methods and several other online self-service options at https://ttc.lacounty.gov/.
