Section 40-9C-4

Authorization of abatement.

(a) Noneducational ad valorem taxes, construction related noneducation transaction taxes, except those construction related transaction taxes levied for educational purposes or for capital improvements for education, and mortgage and recording taxes may be abated with respect to brownfield development property and security documents and other recordable documents associated therewith as provided in this chapter.

(b) No abatement of noneducational ad valorem taxes may exceed the maximum exemption period of 20 years. No further abatement with respect to the same brownfield development property may be granted unless there is a major addition to the property, in which event abatement may be granted only with respect to the noneducational ad valorem taxes on the major addition by complying with the procedures set forth in this chapter.

(c) An abatement of construction related noneducation transaction taxes shall apply only to tangible personal property and taxable services incorporated into a brownfield development property, the cost of which may be added to capital account with respect to the property, determined without regard to any rule which permits expenditures properly chargeable to capital account to be treated as current expenses. No abatement of construction related noneducation transaction taxes shall extend beyond the date the property is placed in service for federal income tax purposes. No further abatement may be granted for construction related noneducation transaction taxes with respect to the property unless incurred in connection with a major addition, in which event only construction related noneducation transaction taxes that may be added to capital account with respect to the major addition, determined without regard to any rule which permits expenditures properly chargeable to capital account to be treated as current expenses, may be abated by complying with the procedures set forth in this chapter. No construction related state transaction taxes or local construction related transaction taxes levied for educational purposes or capital improvements for education may be abated.

(d) Mortgage and recording taxes with respect to mortgages, deeds, and documents relating to issuing or securing obligations and conveying title into or out of a public authority or county or municipal government with respect to a brownfield development property may be abated by complying with the procedures set forth in this chapter.
