Detroit Renaissance Zone Tax Incentives

RZ tax incentives include a waiver of city income and utility users taxes, most city property taxes, county property taxes, and state income tax or single business tax. The program applies to participants who live, own property  or businesses conducting business within the area and are not delinquent in any local, county or state taxes.

Once qualified, the resident, business or property owner will enjoy the exemption throughout the duration of the program without reapplying. However, if the resident, business or property owner changes his/her status in any way, they must notify the Renaissance Zone Processing Center.
