The purpose of the Mills Act is to provide an opportunity for owners of qualified historic structures to potentially receive property tax relief. The owner agrees to preserve, maintain, and, if necessary, restore their historic property. In return for continued preservation of the property, the owner may reduce the property taxes as much as 50% each year the contract is in effect, depending on a variety of conditions.
