MAYOR’S HOUSING INITIATIVES
Tax Abatement Program – Administered by City Finance Department
This initiative was created to provide incentives for the conversion of rental property to owner occupied housing. The property you are converting to owner-occupied family use must be located within the City limits; it has to have been used exclusively as a rental property for at least three years immediately prior to the conversion or is owned by a person or entity that rehabilitated the property after rental use for 3 consecutive years; you must be converting the property to an owner-occupied, family residence; and you must intend to occupy the home within one year of the date of closing.
City property taxes for the first five years of participation in the Program are abated in whole, then the tax is gradually phased in over a period of four years, at 20% per year, until the tenth year when property taxes will be due in full.
