Online Preparation of your 2020 City of Lakewood Income Tax Return

To utilize the e-file system:

  • Input your social security number (or the primary’s social security number in the case of a joint account) and create a PIN number by clicking on the “Don’t have a PIN?” link next to the log in screen’s PIN field.
  • Make sure that you’ve updated your address with our office, as your current house number is required when setting up your new PIN.
  • The PIN is required to be a combination of letters and numbers (anywhere from 4 to 10 characters). Any letters that are part of your PIN are case sensitive.
  • You will receive confirmation of your PIN’s creation on the log in page.
  • Once you’ve created your PIN and logged into our system, you may prepare your 2020 City of Lakewood income tax return online, file an extension, and/or check your estimates and prior year credits.


Your prior year’s PIN is no longer valid. You will need to create a new PIN each year.
