News from the National Trust for Historic Preservation:
Tax Reform Framework Released-
Historic Tax Credit Not Identified as Worth Keeping!

As anticipated, Republican leadership released a tax reform outline intended to guide House and Senate tax writing committees in their drafting of tax reform legislation.

The framework does not explicitly preserve the historic tax credit and envisions that most business tax credits will be repealed. The federal historic tax credit is the government's primary way of responding to the failure of the market to preserve historic income-producing buildings. Without a federal historic tax credit, the historic fabric of our urban centers, Main Street commercial districts, and small towns nationwide face a much greater risk of economic obsolescence or demolition. If you care about the future of historic preservation, now is the time to act.

Urge your Congressional delegation to contact members of the House Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees with the message that repealing the historic tax credit is bad policy. The need for tax reform is clear, but it must not come at the expense of a program that more than pays for itself and has a proven track record of creating jobs, saving historic buildings, and revitalizing neighborhoods.

Now is the time to speak up for the historic tax credit. Join us in letting Washington know that historic preservation advocates need their voices heard. Our history is too important.
