Maui County 2024 2025 Property Tax Rates Cover

The County of Maui has announced new property tax rates for the 2024/2025 fiscal year. Rates went up in a number of different categories to address both the property taxes lost and the significant additional expenses incurred due to the 2023 fires. The bulk of the increases were focused on second homes and vacation rental condos. The only homeowner rate that increased was for homes that are assessed for more than $3,000,000.

Check out the county’s description of different property type classifications if there is any confusion on what category your current property or future property might fit into. If you are relocating to the island and intend to use the home as your primary residence, please pay attention to eligibility for the homeowner tax classification.

Maui Homeowner and Long Term Rental Exemptions

If you have a primary residence on Maui or own a property that you rent long term, you may be eligible to reduce your tax bill. Under the homeowner (primary residence) exemption, residents are eligible for a $200,000 reduction on their assessed value. The long term rental exemption also provides a $200,000 reduction on the assessed value if your tenant has a year lease or longer. If you have a long term rental on the same property as your primary residence, you may be eligible for a $300,000 total reduction on your assessed value.

The deadline to file for the homeowner or long term rental exemptions for this coming fiscal year passed. If you file by the end of 2024, you would be eligible for the exemption and tax rate for the 2025/2026 fiscal year. Here is the link to the Long Term Rental Exemption and the Home Owner Exemption forms. As noted above, the rules for eligibility for the homeowner exemption can be confusing. It is worth reading the county Exemption FAQ to better understand eligibility requirements.

Maui Property Tax Notable Dates
