Neighborhood Revitalization Plan (NRP)

Property Tax Rebate Program for Qualified Improvements

The Phillips County Neighborhood Revitalization Plan is a county-wide tax rebate incentive program aimed to stimulate economic growth through improvements in existing properties and new construction. Increase the assessed value of your property by at least $10,000 and qualify for a rebatable percentage of your property taxes over the next nine years. New building construction, property rehabilitation and additions to existing buildings within the legal boundaries of Phillips County are eligible to qualify and participate in the program.

What are the NRP qualification criteria?

To qualify for the program, you must:
  -  not have started construction until Part 1 of your NRP application has been approved by the Phillips County Commission.
