Historic Tax Credit Consulting

With expertise in both Federal and State Historic Tax Credit Applications, we can help you navigate the requirements and application process for this critical financial tool for your project. The application includes:

  • Part 1 – Evaluation of Significance (At the beginning of the project)
  • Part 2 – Description of Rehabilitation (During the design process)
  • Amendments/Advisory Determination as needed
  • Part 3 – Request for Certification of Completed Work (Upon construction completion)

We help you pair your project goals with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, resulting in a historically sensitive approach to your dynamic new use for the building.

To be eligible, a property must be:

  • Within a National Register Historic District
  • Individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places
  • or, a district certified by the National Park Service for the purposes of the federal tax credit program.

We’ve successfully helped complete nominations and secure designation on the National Register of Historic Places for districts and individual properties. This research helps bring forward a community’s rich history and can provide the eligibility for this gap-filling tool for a project.
