[ARCHIVED] Property Tax Exemptions

The City of Dubuque is currently accepting applications from owners of property in Dubuque's urban revitalization areas who may qualify for tax cuts if improvements have been made that increase the assessed value of the property.

The Dubuque Urban Revitalization Program, based on Chapter 404 of the Code of Iowa, focuses on the revitalization of properties in Dubuque’s older neighborhoods and offers a property tax exemption for new improvements made to qualified residential properties and limited commercial properties. Owners who upgrade their residential properties may receive a 10-year exemption from the property tax liability that would normally accompany numerous property improvements. Owners of commercial property in the Washington Neighborhood UR district may be eligible for a three-year exemption. Click below to determine if your property is eligible for a tax exemption and how to apply.

For additional information contact the Housing and Community Development Department at 563-589-4239.

Applications must be filled out and returned to the Housing and Community Development Department, 350 West 6th Street, Suite 312, Dubuque IA 52001 by 5 pm on February 1st.
