Special State Rehabilitation Tax Credit Session

PA 343 of 2020 was signed into law establishing the new State Historic Tax Credit, a Michigan income tax credit of 25 percent available to support the rehabilitation of certain historic resources. This session introduces the basics of the program, and discusses eligibility, the application, and the review processes.

This session is included for in-person and live-stream registrants. It also is offered as an a la carte ticket, however, for in-person guests.
