This program is designed to support victims of a total loss due to a federally declared disaster.

Purchasers of lots are not eligible, even if the purchaser was impacted by the fire.

To claim the rebate, property owners must file building permits within three years of the fires:
  • Permit deadline for Cal-Wood Fire – Oct. 31, 2023
  • Permit deadline for Marshall Fire – Dec. 31, 2024
Is the rebate also for Louisville and Superior use tax?
No. This program applies only to the county’s use tax on residential properties. The county is aware that both the City of Louisville and the Town of Superior have or may determine to offer their own use tax relief to impacted property owners in those communities.
