NCHBA DISASTER RELIEF ALERT
Hurricane Florence left a wide path of destruction throughout the entire state and especially in central and eastern North Carolina.
In light of this disaster, the Board of Directors of the North Carolina Home Builders Educational & Charitable Foundation, Inc. (NCHBECF) announced the establishment of the “Hurricane Florence Disaster Relief Fund” to aid members of the North Carolina Home Builders Association (NCHBA) in recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Florence.

“Since rivers have yet to crest and flood waters recede, accurate damage estimates are not yet possible, however, we know our members in the affected areas have suffered greatly along with our fellow citizens,” said Gary Embler, NCHBECF Chairman. “We intend to help our members so they can in turn assist their neighbors.”
“The NCHBECF is a Sec. 501 (c)(3) entity conferring federal tax deductibility to donations,” said Mike Carpenter, NCHBA Executive Vice President. “I know our members will give generously in order to make the greatest impact possible.”
“As has always been the case in past natural disasters, home builders and tradespeople will be leading the way in rebuilding our state,” added current NCHBA President Alan Banks.

Recently, I received a property tax assessment for an inventory home we have under construction. The home will sell for $800k, so you can imagine the tax bill could be high on this one. Fortunately, we had done the proper paper work to request a lower assessment based on the builder inventory bill that the NCHBA got passed in the General Assembly.
Instead of an assessment of $588,0000, we received a correct assessment of $85,000 – Lot value. The saving in tax is $5505 on this one house! I have paid my HBA membership for 10 years on the savings from this one house.
Be sure to share your own stories of how the HBA has benefitted you and your business when talking with other members. There is so much that we benefit from that ultimately benefits the home owner. Without the NCHBA at work in Raleigh, I would have a very different tax bill today.
Be proud of the team you are on!

It matters how you conduct your business whether you are entering into contracts with customers, advertising, applying for permits and any other matter in which you are portraying yourself as an individual or corporate entity with intent to conduct business as a North Carolina Licensed General Contractor. Nearly 30% of all HBA Builder Members are not operating in a 100% correct manner. Be certain that you are! Why does this matter? More information from the NCLBGC below…
