Illinois Historic Preservation Tax Credit Program
Is Up and Running

The Illinois Historic Preservation Tax Credit Program is up and running. The program provides a state income tax credit equal to 25% of a projectís qualified expenditures to owners of certified historic structures located within River Edge Redevelopment Zones (Aurora (pictured), East St. Louis, Elgin, Rockford and soon Peoria) who undertake certified rehabilitations during the taxable year. Landmarks Illinois, National Trust for Historic Preservation, and AIA Illinois continue to work on efforts to expand this program for the entire state.


For information on the current program, administered jointly by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) and the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency (IHPA), go to: www.illinoishistory.gov/PS/IHPATCP.HTM.
