The reported information from each appraisal district is maintained in a registry of reinvestment zones and tax abatements and compiled into a biennial report.
The report is completed no later than Dec. 31 of each even-numbered year and submitted to the legislature and to the governor. The report includes a summary of the information reported under this section.
This updated spreadsheet contains abatement details such as business owner receiving the abatement; type of business; size of business; execution, effective and expiration dates. This spreadsheet does not include any financial information. For employment and financial information see the “Abatement-Employment Report” and/or the “Abatement Percentages Report.”
Note: This revised spreadsheet contains information on “Base Value,” “Property Value,” and other employment information such as “Old FTEs” “Old Payroll,” “New FTEs,” and “New Payroll Dollars.” Form 50-276 used prior to June 2018 would capture information in a single field where a number would be provided regarding “old” FTEs" and “old” Payroll Dollars Created" without indicating what years those numbers are applied to or for how many years those numbers would apply. Form 50-276 used since June 2018 encourages local governments to indicate the number of “new” FTEs" and “new” Payroll Dollars Created" for each and every year the abatement is provided.
This report contains the name of the business receiving the abatement, the percentage of abatement for each year received, the length of time of the abatement, date of expiration of the abatement and its current status.
