State Historic Tax Credit bill introduced in Illinois House of Representatives

 

Study shows bill would create hundreds of construction jobs by repurposing historic buildings statewide (3/3/2014)

An economic study prepared by the University of Illinois Springfield for Landmarks Illinois demonstrates that a statewide historic tax credit would help rehabilitate dozens of historic buildings, pay for itself without a hit to the state budget, and create hundreds of jobs across the state. The study prompted the introduction of HB4533 by Representative Frank Mautino (D-Spring Valley) on February 4, 2014, to support the creation of a statewide historic tax credit. Its counterpart, SB336, sponsored by Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill), passed the State Senate on April 24, 2013, with a resounding vote of 46-8.
