CALL TO ACTION Join and get involved with the MI Impact Coalition, as we work to bring back Michigan’s State Rehab Tax Credit.  Senate Bill 469 (S1) passed the Senate on December 13, 2017. House Bill 5178 (HB 5178) has also been introduced to reinstate the Michigan Historic Preservation Tax Credit. These bills would reinstate the popular program that offers a credit of up to 25 percent of rehabilitation expenses against state income tax.

Among the many responsibilities of the National Park Service (NPS) is the oversight of the National Register of Historic Places and administration of the Federal Historic Tax Incentives Program.  In 2012 the Historic Tax Incentives Program celebrated its 35th anniversary.  To share this accomplishment, the NPS published a 24 page brochure that provides an overview of the program, provides some statistics about number of buildings restored and the value of the credits issued.
