Multi-unit Property Tax Exemption
Multi-Unit Property Tax Exemption (MUPTE)
On July 13, 2015 the Eugene City Council approved an ordinance revising the Multi-Unit Property Tax Exemption (MUPTE) program. The revised ordinance will go into effect in August, 2015. Under the new MUPTE program student housing will no longer be eligible. The revisions also include increased energy efficiency, higher quality design standards, expanded neighborhood involvement and an extensive community review process.

The administrative rules for the updated MUPTE program are available online.
The Multi-Unit Property Tax Exemption program is enabled under state law for the purposes of stimulating the construction of multi-unit housing in the core area and to ensure use of the core area as a place where citizens have the opportunity to live as well as work. Projects eligible for the tax exemption include construction, addition or conversion of rental or ownership multi-unit housing within the MUPTE boundary (please see map below). Projects must include a minimum of five new housing units.

Tax Exemption
The MUPTE program offers a property tax exemption on the new structure or incremental change in the property value of the building that comprises the project for a maximum of 10 years. Projects are required to address specific quality standards established in the program. Tax exemption requests are reviewed and approved by the Eugene City Council.
