About Mills Act
The Mills Act is a state program that is administered and implemented by local governments. Under Mills Act contracts, private property owners receive tax benefits in exchange for proper maintenance and preservation of the historical and architectural character of their property for an initial 10-year term. The Mills Act is especially beneficial for recent buyers of historic sites, or owners who may have recently had a property transfer or tax re-assessment.
