The Industrial and Commercial Abatement (ICAP) program provides abatements of property taxes for varying periods of up to 25 years for eligible industrial and commercial buildings that are built, modernized, rehabilitated, expanded, or otherwise physically improved.
The Industrial and Commercial Incentive Program (ICIP) exemption ended in 2008. However, benefit recipients must complete a renewal (Certificate of Continuing Use, CCU) to renew the exemption. You must renew every two years.
The deadline to file an application for ICAP benefits has been extended to March 1, 2022.
The deadline to file an ICAP application for energy rebates has been extended to June 30, 2020.
ICAP benefits will not be granted for construction work under building permits that are issued after April 1, 2022. If a building permit isn't required, ICAP benefits will not be granted for construction work that starts after April 1, 2022.
You can get more information, review FAQs, and fill in and print the application form on DOF's website. You can also verify your application status on the Property List page.

You must submit a Certificate of Continuing Use (CCU) for your ICIP exemption every year and you must renew your ICAP property tax abatement every two years.
The Department of Finance (DOF) mails notices to recipients when it is time to renew and includes a User ID and password so you can renew online.
The deadline to renew for 2020/21 was January 5, 2020. If the Department of Finance (DOF) didn’t receive your renewal, you will automatically lose the benefits and your property taxes will increase starting July 1, 2020.
