The Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance (LERTA) program allows for the graduated payment of tax assessments relative to any building or property improvements. The LERTA district overlay includes the central business district and provides an incentive for property improvements. More information is in the LERTA Ordinance. Here’s an example of the benefits:

  • Current property tax assessment: $100,000
  • After repair/improvement tax assessment: $150,000
  • Tax payments continue at the base assessment level but the differential ($50,000 assessment value) is graduated over five years.
