  • Assessing Forms & Applications

    Board of Review Form (Available at the Assessing Office)
  • Property Transfers

    In the year following a transfer of property the taxable value of the property uncaps and matches the new state equalized/assessed value of the property. This action can result in changes in the annual property taxes. A Property Transfer Affidavit (Form L-4260) must be filed within 45 days of a transfer or a penalty can be imposed.

  • Homestead Status Changes

    Homestead properties receive beneficial tax treatment because they do not pay school operating taxes. A property must be owned and occupied as a principal residence to qualify as a homestead property. A request for homestead exemption must be filed on the Homestead Exemption Affidavit (Form 2368).

  • Land Divisions

    Land splits must be approved by the Assessor’s Office to ensure the split does not violate zoning requirements and the Sub-Division Control Ordinance.

  • Personal Property Statements

    Each business must file this form annually. The Assessor’s Office determines the Assessed Value based on the State Tax Commission Depreciation Schedules.

  • Industrial Facilities Exemption (IFE)

    Industrial businesses can apply for tax abatement on new buildings, additions, rehabilitation, and personal property.

Building Department

The Greenville Building Department is responsible for administering and enforcing all Building Officials and Code Association (BOCA) and city building codes. Our building inspectors ensure that all structures within the City are constructed safely and related property is maintained according to minimum code standards. The mission is carried out through the effective enforcement of codes for Building, Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing, Property Maintenance and Signs. These standards are used to measure the quality of new construction, the structural integrity of existing structures and sanitary conditions of buildings and exterior property areas.
