Tax Rebate Incentive (2014-2018)

Neighborhood Revitalization Plan (NRP) - Tax Rebate Incentive

During the 1994 legislative session, lawmakers passed Senate Bill 732, which provides tax rebates for new construction and for the rehabilitation of existing structures. The City of WaKeeney, City of Collyer, Trego County, and School District USD208 entered into an Interlocal Agreement the end of 2013 in order to create a tax rebate program. This plan is intended to promote the revitalization and development of the county of Trego by stimulating new construction and rehabilitation, conservation, or development of the area in order to protect the public health, safety or welfare of the residents of the county by offering certain incentives which includes tax rebates.
