To continue educating communities
about the need for a statewide historic tax credit program, and the benefits of
the federal historic tax credit program, Landmarks Illinois is scheduling eight
historic tax credit workshops throughout the state this summer. The workshops
will highlight the findings of Landmarks Illinois’
state historic tax credit economic study, released in October 2013, which
concluded that such a program would pay for itself and create needed jobs.
The state’s existing River’s Edge Historic Tax Credit, available only in 5
cities and due to expire in January, 2017, is not sufficient for attracting
investment and creating jobs statewide. The workshops will also highlight
projects using the federal historic tax credit and the need to protect this
critical program from tax reforms expected to be considered by Congress next
year. Check back for more workshop dates and locations soon.
The Historic Tax Credit Workshops are made possible through the generous
support of the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust.
