State and Federal Historic Preservation Tax Credit Programs

  • Maryland Tax Credits
    In addition to the Montgomery County Historic Preservation Tax Credit, the state of Maryland offers a tax credit to owners of certain historic properties. This tax credit program, administered by the Maryland Historical Trust (MHT), provides a 20% state income tax credit for qualified interior and exterior rehabilitation work. In order to be eligible for the Maryland tax credit, properties must be listed in the National Register of Historic Places or be listed in the Master Plan and be determined by MHT to be eligible for the National Register. Note: Please contact MHT for additional information prior to undertaking your project.
  • Federal Tax Credits
    The federal government offers tax credits for the rehabilitation of certain historic properties. To qualify for a Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentive, buildings must be income-producing properties listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Information about federal tax credits is available from the National Park Service and MHT.
    NOTE: Please contact MHT for additional information prior to undertaking your project.
