Revitalization Tax Exemption

Helping business thrive

The reasons and objectives for the revitalization tax exemption program are to:

  • (a) provide owners with an economic incentive for construction;
  • (b) encourage the development of a wide variety of buildings and uses in the District;
  • (c) increase development, foot traffic, activity, and animation of the District; and
  • (d) increase local employment opportunities.

Eligible property will be limited to new construction or renovation of existing buildings in the District that results in a non-market change to the value of a lot within the District of at least $500,000.

An exemption will apply for three years and will be applied as follows:

  • 100% exemption in the first year;
  • 50% exemption in the second year; and
  • 25% exemption in the third year.

Full municipal property taxation would be applied in the fourth and succeeding years.
