Permissive Property Tax Exemptions

Some properties such as libraries, hospitals and educational institutions are automatically exempt from property taxes. In addition to the automatic exemptions, municipalities may exempt certain properties from property taxes such as those held by charitable or not-for-profit organizations, those held by athletic clubs, or properties that are part of a revitalization area.
