At-Large Councilmember David Grosso introduced the Residential Real Property Taxes Equitable Alignment Act of 2019, a bill which would enact a more progressive residential property tax structure citywide.
If implemented, the bill would create two additional property tax rates: $1.25 for each additional $100 of assessed value over $1.5 million, and $1.50 for each additional $100 over $5 million. The standard residential property tax is 85 cents per $100 of value, not counting other deductions.
“D.C. has experienced tremendous economic growth in the past decade, but not everyone has shared in that prosperity,” Grosso said in a statement. “My proposal makes our property tax structure more equitable by increasing the rates on those at the top."
Ward 1 Councilmember Brianne Nadeau signed onto the bill as a co-sponsor. The bill is expected to be referred to the Committee on Finance and Revenue.
