Rebate Programs

Heritage Rebate Program

The Heritage Rebate Program allows for designated properties to apply for a 40% rebate on property taxes. The intent of the program is to allow for the property to maintain its historical state and provide for improvements. The property designation process is handled by the Building Department and the rebate process is handled through Financial Services. Applications must be submitted to Financial Services between February 1st and February 28th

The Heritage Tax Rebate Program was updated in 2012. Rebates are only granted once every 3 years for qualifying properties. For information and an application relating to the Heritage Tax Rebate Program, please see the following download links:
