Auditor Craig Snodgrass announces that a new Tax Abatement web application has been developed by his office and has been released to assist you in obtaining abatement information. The Web App is a convenient way of locating abated property on an aerial map, discovering communities that offer tax abatement and provides access to abatement documents and terms. The Web App has features that allow you to run queries that can be exported or generated into reports. You can also search for properties with existing or expired abatements. The data within the web app is comprised of two tax abatement programs; Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) and the Enterprise Zone (EZ).
