The Federal Historic Tax Credit was eliminated in the draft tax reform bill released by the House of Representatives Ways & Means Committee on November 2, 2017. Here’s what we’re doing and how you can help.

Historic Tax Credit Threatened

The Federal Historic Tax Credit was eliminated in the draft tax reform bill released by the House of Representatives Ways & Means Committee on November 2, 2017. In Maryland, since 2001, a total of 505 federal historic tax credits projects have been certified, resulting in over $2 billion in total investment in Maryland’s historic communities. Without immediate action, it is now very likely that the preservation community will lose the Historic Tax Credit. Preservationists are urged to contact their Representatives and ask for them to use their voice to add it back to the final House bill.
