Overview

We have represented many clients on a national basis in the use of Historic Tax Credits (HTC) which are a federal subsidy that our clients rely on to support the restoration of historic building, many of which have been certified by the National Park Service as historic. The HTC program is administered jointly by the Department of the Interior and the Department of the Treasury. We guide our clients through each step of the process which can be quite challenging in order to ensure a successful outcome, often utilizing other tax credits along with HTC.
