Mayor Bissen announces property taxes will be waived for improved properties destroyed by Maui Wildfires

News Release from Office of the Mayor, August 17, 2023

Mayor Richard Bissen announced Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2023, that fiscal year 2023-24 property taxes will be waived for improved properties completely destroyed by the Maui Wildfire Disaster in Upcountry, Kihei and Lahaina.

This applies only to improved properties that were completely destroyed in Upcountry, Kihei and Lahaina.

Improved properties were not vacant land (prior to the disaster) and have a record on under "Improvement Information" or "Commercial Improvement Information.” The properties have either a residential structure or a commercial structure.

The Department of Finance, which handles property taxes, is compiling a list of improved properties, by address and tax map key, which were completely destroyed by the fires.

If taxes have already been paid, refunds will be issued to the payer by Oct. 31, 2023. In the near future, a process for people not on the initial list for waiver will be announced.

Devastating wildfires broke out around Maui on Aug. 8, 2023, with some that have yet to be fully extinguished.
