Urban Revitalization Tax Exemption

Are you making improvements to your property that will add to its taxable value?
If so, the City of Davenport has a tax exemption program that may help you.

The Urban Revitalization Tax Exemption Program (URTE) was created to encourage private investment and reinvestment in targeted areas of the city by providing an exemption on the increase in property taxes resulting from major improvements. All classes of property are eligible residential, commercial and industrial. There is also a special category designed to help revitalize abandoned residential properties.

To view the targeted areas that are eligible for the tax exemption program please see map. The level of exemption from taxation is based on the actual value added by the improvement (which must increase the value of the property by at least 10 percent). The tax exemption schedules vary depending on property classification.


If interested in learning more about the program call 563-326-7765 or email urte@ci.davenport.ia.us
