Protect the Historic Tax Credit!

The National Trust for Historic Preservation’s campaign to protect the historic tax credit from elimination on Capitol Hill just scored an important victory! Late last week, U.S. Representatives Aaron Schock (R-Ill.), Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), Mike Kelly (R-Penn.), and Ron Kind (D-Wis.) introduced legislation that would enhance the credit’s ability to preserve historic buildings and revitalize our communities.

The bill’s introduction is an especially important milestone considering a tax reform plan put forth by House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) last February that called for eliminating the tax credit.

Help us capitalize on this development by reaching out to your representative TODAY to urge their co-sponsorship of the “Creating American Prosperity through Preservation” (CAPP) Act (H.R. 5655).

As this current session of Congress comes to a close, and we look to establish a strong foundation for the next session, it is essential we demonstrate member support for the historic tax credit now. Thank you for letting your representative know that the historic tax credit and its impact on our historic communities matters to you.
