Tax Abatement Incentives

The City of Pittsburgh offers tax abatement incentives for commercial or residential developers.

In prior years, the URA had an administrative role in the City tax abatement programs. The URA is not currently designated by the City of Pittsburgh for a role in administering the new abatement programs that took effect in 2020.
