Two Preservation Tax Credit Workshops Scheduled This Week

Preservation Buffalo Niagara and the City of Buffalo are sponsoring two workshops later this week explaining the NYS Historic Homeowner Tax Credit program.  These workshops are free and open to the public. Advance registration is strongly encouraged as seating is limited.  People may attend more than one workshop, but registration is required for each.  Refreshments will be served. 

The Federal Historic Preservation Commercial Tax Credit and NYS Historic Commercial Tax Credit programs can be combined to cover 40% of qualified rehabilitation expenditures.

The NYS Historic Residential Properties Tax Credit Program will cover 20% of qualified rehabilitation costs of owner‐occupied historic houses, up to a credit value of $50,000. This program requires that the building be individually listed in the State or National Register of Historic Places, or in a listed historic district. The building must also be located in a qualifying census tract, and at least $5,000 must be spent on the project.

Wednesday, April 20 ~ 6:30‐8:00 PM
Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site
641 Delaware Avenue
Representatives of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation will explain how owners of historic homes can take advantage of New York State’s Historic Homeowner Tax Credit.

Thursday, April 21 ~ 7:30‐9:00 AM
Towne Restaurant
186 Allen Street
Contractors, architects and others who work on homes in the many National Register Historic Districts in Erie and Niagara counties will learn how they can help their customers take advantage of Historic Homeowner Tax Credits for rehabilitation work on their homes.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
