The Mills Act is a state law which permits municipalities to contract with the owners of historic structures. These types of contracts allow for property tax breaks in exchange for the continued preservation of the property.
The law stipulates that the amount saved is contingent upon the property’s location, size, and comparable rents in the area. The property’s value is regularly assessed by the tax assessor’s office. The formula and protocol that are used is from the state law.
