What is the Neighborhood Revitalization Program?
 
The program is intended to promote the revitalization of designated areas of the City of Augusta through the rehabilitation, conservation or redevelopment of those areas in order to protect the public health, safety or welfare of the residents of the City.  More specifically, a tax rebate incentive will be available for eligible improvements or renovations to properties located within the area.  If you have any questions or need assistance completing the application, contact Augusta City Hall at 316-775-4510 or 316-775-4505.

What Types of Improvement Projects Qualify?
 
Projects that are more likely to increase a structure's appraised value include additions, windows, and siding.  Projects such as painting and carpet are eligible, but may not result in much, if any, increase in value.
 
Is There a Minimum Amount I need to Spend on My Improvements?
 
Yes.  For residential property, you will need to spend at least $5,000 or 10% of the assessed value of your building, whichever is higher.  Assessed value is calculated by taking the appraised value of your residential property and multiplying by 11.5%.
 
I Own a Business in Augusta.  Are Commercial Projects Eligible?
 
Yes.  The program covers commercial projects as well as residential construction.
 
Is There a Minimum Amount I need to Spend on My Improvements?
 
Yes.  For commercial property, you will need to spend at least $10,000 or 15% of the assessed value of your building, whichever is higher.  Assessed value is calculated by taking the appraised value of your commercial property and multiplying by 25%.
 
I've Finished Construction.  What is the Next Step?
 
In the January following construction completion, the County Appraiser will inspect and determine the new valuation.
 
When Do I Get My Rebate?
 
Your tax rebate will begin the following January.  After you have made full payment of your annual taxes, Butler County will send you the appropriate rebate.  A check will be mailed in January (if taxes are paid in full in December) or June (if taxes are paid in full by May).
 
What if I Fail to Pay My Taxes?
 
Participation in the program will be canceled.
 
Can I Reapply if My Delinquent Taxes are Paid?
 
Yes.  You can apply to take advantage of a one time provision to be reinstated.  Taxes must be paid in full no later than 45 days after their due date.
