Business revitalization zone (BRZ) tax rates

A Business Revitalization Zone (BRZ) is established by businesses in an area to jointly raise and administer funds for various projects and promotional activities within the zone throughout the year.

Each BRZ’s Board of Directors establishes an annual budget to fund their activities. A tax rate is established for each BRZ to raise the required revenue to meet their budget requirements. City Council approves the establishment of BRZs, their annual budgets, and the annual tax rates.

Business revitalization zone levy calculation

The BRZ levy is calculated by multiplying the business assessment by the BRZ tax rate:

BRZ levy = Business assessment × BRZ tax rate
