The 2022 Hawaii County Real Property Tax assessments increased considerably over last year’s assessed values, with some property owners seeing increases as high as 120%. New first time homebuyers may see a significant increase in their mortgages and many small businesses will bear the brunt of commercial property tax increases.
Please use the form on this page to send a pre-written message to the Council, urging them to support legislation that reduces the huge tax increases on Hawaii Island residents and business owners.
We are encouraging our Councilmembers and County Administration to consider the impact the assessed value increases will have on community members who are still recovering from personal and business losses through the pandemic.
Please contact the Council to alert them to this important issue and to encourage them to support legislative initiatives that reduce the significant tax increases on Hawaii Island residents and business owners.
