CRA Tax Abatement Program
The purpose of the CRA is to encourage revitalization of the existing housing and building stock and the construction of new structures.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Residential applicants will pick up an application (CRA Form 1) when applying for a building permit. Residential applicants will have 1 year from completion of project to complete application, in order to have it filed with the county auditor.
- Prior to construction business applicants will pick up and fill out an application (CRA Form 1 and CRA Form 2).
- The business may begin construction of its facility after steps 1-12 of the business process (CRA Form 2) are completed.
- All commercial and industrial projects are required to comply with the state application fee, presently $750.00, requirements of ORC Section 3735.672 (C) and the local annual monitoring fee of one percent of the amount of taxes exempted under the agreement – a minimum of $500 up to a maximum of $2500 annually unless waived.
