Excise tax waiver

Our District School Board voted to waive construction excise tax (CET) payments on residential and commercial building construction, replacing the buildings destroyed by the fire and future natural disasters. 

The waiver applies to the property owner during the emergency event and their family members who may have taken ownership. 

We will be working with Lane County to establish the best way to provide the funds to those who have already paid their CET on their rebuild. 

We know it's such a hard time for our community and our board wanted to do the right thing for our fellow community members as we look to the future.
