Update: Historic Tax Credit in Tax Bills

House-Senate tax reform reconciliation is underway. Despite decades of bipartisan support and success, the federal Historic Tax Credit has been eliminated in the proposed tax reform House bill. However, as a result of strong advocacy from around the country, the Senate bill retains the current 20 percent credit on qualified rehabilitation expenses. The national preservation community is actively engaged to convince the House to accept the language of the Senate in order to preserve this pro-growth preservation tool.
