Tax Abatement Program

A tax abatement is the full or partial exemption from ad valorem taxes on eligible properties for a period of up to ten years and an amount of up to 100 percent of the increase in appraised value (as reflected on the certified tax roll of the appropriate county appraisal district) resulting from improvements begun after the execution of the tax abatement agreement. Eligible properties must be located in a reinvestment zone.

Tax abatements are authorized under Chapter 312 of the Texas Tax Code.
