Residential Tax Abatement

When you build a new home or invest in renovations, your property taxes can go up. The City of Cincinnati’s Residential Property Tax Abatement allows owners to pay taxes on the pre-improvement value of their property for 10-15 years. Property tax abatement is available for any increased valuation that results from improvements to the property for new construction and renovation.

Tax abatement benefits stay with the property the entire length of the abatement and transfer to any new property owner within the approved time period. Please note that applications should be submitted with a $250 application fee.
