Due to the strain COVID-19 has put on businesses, Town Council is offering a tax deferral program. If your commercial property taxes are paid up to date, you will have the opportunity to defer property taxes for 2020 for up to 12 months from the regular due date with no penalties or interest. With this program, 2020 property taxes must be paid in full by December 31, 2021. The business owner is responsible to submit this application for the Town of Foam Lake’s consideration; acceptance is not guaranteed. If you plan to take advantage of this program, we strongly encourage property owners to make monthly payments to reduce their tax balance. Please fill out the Application for Tax Deferral and return it to the Town Office.
