Historic Tax Credits
Not only do our products conserve energy and provide increased aesthetic appeal, but they meet very specific tolerances for tax credit and abatement projects. Our associates will help guide you through the entire process of getting the historic tax credits for your property.
Renovating historic buildings allows financial incentives available from city, state and federal resources. Using tax incentives, builders and developers can alleviate significant costs of a historic renovation in order to carefully preserve and restore historic buildings. In order to qualify for these historic tax credits, a property must:
- Be listed on the National Register
- Be a contributing resource within a National Register District
- Be a contributing resource within a Certified Local Historic District – must contribute to preserve America’s historic past.
- Have a total project cost of at least 50% of the basis of the property.
Each local Historic District Ordinance has a unique set of rehabilitation and design standards that architects, builders and developers are required to follow in order to earn historic tax credits. These standards should be applied to both the interior and exterior of historic properties and must be reviewed for compliance.
