COLUMBUS TAX ABATEMENT SUMMARY

All property owners will continue to pay existing taxes on the property

Homebuyers who purchase newly constructed housing will continue to pay taxes on the land and/or existing structures.  However, taxes on the value of the newly built home structure will be abated for 15 years. 

Owner-occupants of single family homes making improvements of at least 20% of the current market value of the existing property will be exempt from paying property taxes for 10 years on any increased value of their property due to improvement.  

Owners of single or multi-family properties up to 4 units of rental property who make improvements of at least 50% of the current market value of their property will be exempt from paying property taxes for 12 years on any increased value of their property due to improvement. 

Property tax exemptions will be based on increased valuation of the property, due to significant improvements.
