Municipal Tax Clawback/Capping Rates

Capping refers to a municipality's option to limit, or cap, the tax increases on commercial, industrial and multi-residential properties. The capping program uses a "Clawback" to fund revenue losses resulting from commercial, industrial or multi-residential properties that decrease in value by withholding some or all of the reduction to property owners.
