Livable Homes Tax Credit Program
NEW! View Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the Livable Homes Tax Credit program.
Effective December 5, 2012, the Livable Homes County Tax Credit is available for certain types of accessibility features* installed in the homeowner’s principal residence. The property owner may file an application** to receive a credit against county tax for a feature that is installed on an existing residence that is the owner’s principal residence when the feature is installed. The amount of the credit is the lesser of 50% of the eligible cost or $2,500. You must also obtain a permit from the Department of Inspections, Licenses, & Permits (DILP) for the work (even if the scope of the work would not normally require a permit and inspections).
