Historic Tax Credits
The Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives program is one of the nation’s most successful and cost-effective public/private revitalization programs. The program fosters private sector rehabilitation of historic buildings and promotes economic revitalization. It also provides a strong alternative to government ownership and management of such historic properties.

The Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives are available for buildings that are National Historic Landmarks, are listed in the National Register, and that contribute to National Register Historic Districts and certain state or local historic districts. Properties must be income-producing and must be rehabilitated according to standards set by the Secretary of the Interior. This program has provided a 10 or 20 percent tax credit that can be applied to the preservation of historic properties for offices, rental housing and retail stores, and buildings in certain districts may qualify for an additional 20% state credit.

Our tax credit advisory professionals understand the competing interest of all parties in historic rehabilitation projects and the range of tax credit opportunities available, such as the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC), as well as the Brownfield Cleanup Program. Our services include:

  • Financial Analysis and Strategy
  • Budgeted Sources and Uses

    • Cost certifications for qualified rehabilitation expenditures
    • Annual partnership tax returns
