Advocacy Alert: Historic Tax Credit Eliminated in Proposed House Bill

Despite decades of bipartisan support and success, the federal Historic Tax Credit has been eliminated in the proposed tax reform House bill. On November 1, Boston City Council unanimously passed a Resolution Supporting the Historic Tax Credit Program. On November 9, Ways & Means Committee Ranking Member Rep. Richard Neal spoke in favor of the Historic TaxCredit. We urge you to contact your Senators and Representatives this week, asking them to preserve this revenue positive program.
