City council must designate your building as historic or already have designated your building as historic. Your building is then placed into one of several historic categories:

  • City of Houston Landmark
  • Protected Landmark
  • A building that “Contributes” to an established historic district

The City provides an alternative tax exemption for “significant” historic buildings.

To qualify, the building must:

  • Be designated as a City of Houston Protected Landmark;
  • Be at least 50 years of age;
  • 4+ units if residential and originally built and used for non-residential purposes;
  • Individually listed in the National Register of Historic Places
  • Dedicated as a Recorded Texas Historical Landmark
  • References having historical significance in a survey conducted by a non-profit or government agency
  • Obtain 75% approval of the members of the HAHC present at a meeting

The applicant must re-apply for the exemption each year before April 30th with the Harris County Appraisal District. (HCAD Form 11.24)

If sufficient restoration work has not been completed to satisfy the percentage of tax exemption within 5 years of the passage of an historic site tax exemption ordinance then the exemption ordinance will expire.

Minimum Funds:

Varies by Project.



Maximum Funds:
  • The significant historic buildings may be exempted from City of Houston ad valorem taxes for both improvements and land, up to $30,000 per year in perpetuity.

  • The exemption shall automatically continue as of January 1st of each year succeeding the year the exemption was first granted for the duration of the 10 or 15-year period.

Calculating the Tax Exemption

  • If qualifying expenditures are at least 25%, but less than 100% of base value, the annual exemption for each year on the assessed value of the structure shall be equal to the amount of the qualifying expenditures.
  • If qualifying expenditures are 100% or more of the base value of the improvements, then the exemption for each tax year shall be 100% of the assessed value of the historic structure or improvements not including the value of any land associated with this historic site.
1. Application period is open

2. Preferred Vendor/Contractor required: No

3. Pre-Approval Required: Yes

4. Pre-Inspection Required: No

  2. The Houston Archaeological and Historic Commission (HAHC) approves your plans to revive the outside of your building, issuing a certificate of appropriateness (COA). A COA is unnecessary for internal improvements.

  3. You’ll apply for a historic site tax exemption from economic development. After the site is designated "historic" by City Council, each owner desiring the tax exemption must complete a sworn application to the City's Director of Economic Development Department.
