The As-of right Tax Abatement focuses on activating real estate development and job creation in traditionally underserved areas by providing a standardized tax abatement and offering a simplified and streamlined process.
Temporary tax abatements of net new real property or business personal property taxes are available for job creation projects and real estate development projects that advance the City’s economic development goals. Eligible applicants can choose either a 10-year, 90% real property abatement or a 5-year, 90% business personal property abatement.
All tax abatements begin on January 1 of the calendar year that immediately follows the execution of the agreement. As such, the As-of-right Tax Abatement is most appropriate for shovel-ready projects or other near-term investments. Projects with a longer investment timeframe may apply for negotiated incentives.
