Important Tax Exemption For Builders
If you are holding in inventory for sale a single-family or duplex house or land which you have improved for residential or commercial purposes since July 1, 2015, you are eligible to have the value of these improvements exempted from local property taxes
This exemption also applies to single-family and duplex houses under construction or land currently being developed . But, you must apply for this exemption every January.
In one of NCHBA's most important legislative victories ever, the General Assembly in 2015 exempted from local property tax the increase in value of real property held for sale by a builder or developer to the extent that the increase is attributable to subdivision or other improvement to the property. For more information and details on this law , click here .
Don't leave your money on the table! Apply for this exemption.

We Are Going Paperless in 2020
What does this mean for you?
The HBA of Fayetteville will no longer “snail mail” your invoices for dues or events. Invoices will be sent by email only, beginning January 2020 . You have one year to prepare. It is important that you have an email that you check regularly on file so that you receive all of your invoices. You are able to login to your HBAF account and update your email address at your convenience.

Additionally, when you pay your dues by credit card, you are automatically enrolled into autopay. Your credit card will be charged your membership dues during your anniversary month each year.

We appreciate your assistance and understanding as we transition to this new paperless process.
