  • A taxpayer may be required to obtain a Property Tax Clearance Statement before claiming a North Dakota tax incentive.
  • Before a city or county may grant a local tax incentive, the taxpayer applying for the incentive may have to obtain a State Tax Clearance Statement and a Property Tax Clearance Statement. Incentive application forms will provide guidance on any clearance statements needed.
