Lower Property Tax Rates for Many Maui County Residents
Posted by Island Sotheby's International Realty on Wednesday, May 24th, 2023 at 7:31am
Starting in July, most residents who own their homes will enjoy lower property tax rates. The updated Maui County Real Property Tax rates for the upcoming fiscal year have been announced, bringing reduced rates to many homeowners.
Property is classified based on its highest and best use. Properties receiving home exemptions, condominiums, permitted bed and breakfasts and permitted transient vacation rentals are exceptions. Condominiums are classified upon consideration of their actual use — Non-owner-occupied, Commercial, Short-term/Vacation rental, Long-term rental (new classification), Timeshare, or Owner-occupied.
These changes are part of the new property tax rates for fiscal year 2024, which were recently adopted after a public hearing by the Maui County Council. The fiscal year 2024 runs from July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024. The council aligned the rates with the proposals put forth by Mayor Richard Bissen in March.
The property tax rates for fiscal 2024 are as follows and are per $1,000 of net taxable assessed valuation:
Classification (and property valuation, if applicable):
Tier 1, up to $1 million: $1.90
Tier 2, $1,000,001 to $3 million: $2.00
Tier 3, more than $3 million: $2.75
Tier 1, up to $1 million: $5.85
Tier 2, $1,000,001 to $4.5 million: $8.00
Tier 3, more than $4.5 million: $12.50
Hotel and resort: $11.75
Time share: $14.60
Transient vacation rental/short-term rental home: $11.85
Tier 1, up to $1 million: $3.00
Tier 2, $1,000,001 to $3 million: $5.00
