Incentive/Summary In September 2009, the City of Houston Tax
In September 2009, the City of Houston Tax Abatement Program was enacted (Ordinance No. 2009-858), establishing a partial tax abatement for U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified commercial buildings. Since its inception, the tax abatement has been renewed twice, most recently in 2014 (Ordinance No. 2014-245). '''Abatement Amount''' The Ordinance specifies the abatement as follows: “If the owner of a new or refurbished commercial facility has registered with the U.S. Green Building Council seeking LEED Certification, then the Economic Development Division…may recommend approval by the City Council of a partial tax abatement for the incremental investment associated with obtaining such certification. The agreement shall be effective up to 10 years, at a percentage based upon the level of certification actually obtained after completion of construction or refurbishment: * Basic “Certified” Level: 1.0% * Silver Level: 2.5% * Gold Level: 5.0% * Platinum Level: 10%” '''Minimum Investment Requirement''' The LEED building tax abatement can be a stand-alone abatement or part of a standard economic development tax abatement. If used as a stand-alone tax abatement, the minimum investment requirement to be eligible for the partial tax abatement is: * $1 million for an investment in a commercial structure that achieves Platinum LEED Certification, * $2 million for an investment in a commercial structure that achieves Gold LEED Certification, * $4 million for an investment in a commercial structure that achieves Silver LEED Certification, and * $10 million for an investment in a commercial structure that achieves basic LEED Certification.
