Historic Property Tax Deferral
Properties designated as historic properties may be eligible for property tax deferrals. Application filing period is Jan. 1 - 31.
Properties designated as historic properties may be eligible for property tax deferrals.
To qualify you must submit a deferment application to the Charlotte Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission (HLC).
Once your application has been processed, a HLC representative will schedule a site visit to review the property and determine if it qualifies for historical designation. Elements qualifying for historical designation will be eligible for city and county tax deferment of 50% of the taxable assessed value.
If a property loses its historical designation, taxes shall be computed as if the property had not been classified for that year, and taxes for the preceding three deferred fiscal years shall be payable immediately with interest as indicated in G.S. 105-360 for unpaid taxes.
