Historic Property Tax Credit Workshop

PRESS RELEASE:
 
Tax Credit Workshop for Lewes Historic Property Owners
 
This workshop is sponsored by the City of Lewes Historic Preservation Commission to assist Lewes property owners who are preserving and rehabilitating their historic buildings. Both interior and exterior renovation projects of contributing structure my qualify for Delaware and/or Federal tax credits.
 
Annually the Delaware State Legislature sets aside $5million to support property owners of both commercial and residential communities to improve their historic properties through either interior or exterior renovations. These awards can be made retroactively for work done since 2001.
 
Owner-occupied buildings or a part of a building, such as a condominium, may receive a tax credit equal to 30% of the rehabilitation costs; for income-producing rental properties the percentage is 20%.
 
Projects which qualify for Delaware's low income tax credits may receive additional incentives. Delaware's tax credits are transferable; they may be sold or assigned to others who posess Delaware income or franchise tax liability.
