Flood Insurance for Business: Impacts of Recent Legislation - The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is in the process of implementing reforms required by the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 and the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Although the 2014 law repeals or modifies some of the provisions of Biggert-Waters, it maintains the requirement that flood insurance rates for business properties in high-risk areas reflect true risk. This means that the subsidized rates that previously applied to some older business buildings will continue to be phased out.

Based on the best information available to date, the Town anticipates the municipal tax rate (not the Dare County tax rate) to raise approximately 10% Town wide to pay for sand on our northern ocean beaches.
In addition, oceanfront properties where sand is to be placed should expect their tax rates (again, the municipal tax rate only, not the Dare County tax rate) to double. These taxes would be necessary for a minimum of five years.
