Preservation Maryland is pleased to announce it will be hosting several historic rehab tax credit workshops on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Preservation workshops for homeowners AND commercial property owners

The workshops will provide attendees with information on the Maryland Heritage Structure Residential Rehabilitation Program, a 20% tax credit available to qualified historic homeowners engaging in qualified rehab projects. The workshops will be led by Nakita Reed and W. Ward Bucher, architects with extensive preservation experience, who are both with the firm of Encore Sustainable Design.

Attendees can expect to learn:

  • What properties are eligible for the state and federal tax credit programs
  • What projects and expenses are eligible for the credit
  • The basics of the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation
  • How to prepare a tax credit application

The workshops will also offer information on the state’s small commercial historic tax credit – a 20% tax credit available for Main Street-type rehab projects that do not exceed $500,000 in total qualified rehab expenses. Information will also be provided on the federal historic tax credit program.

The workshops are free, but there is a recommended donation of $15 to help defray the expenses of Preservation Maryland, a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to preserving Maryland’s historic buildings, neighborhoods, landscapes, and archaeological sites through advocacy, funding, and outreach.
