Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill allows for a historic preservation tax credit of $5,000,000 for each certified rehabilitation project or for each building within the structure, whichever is greater.  It also provides that a certified rehabilitation project that is placed in service over multiple taxable years is allowed up to $5,000,000 in credit for the portion of the certified rehabilitation project placed in service each taxable year.  These provisions would result in a reduction in General Fund and Local Government Fund revenue of $1,425,000 and $75,000, respectively, in fiscal year 2016-17.  The bill has the potential to substantially increase the credit allowed in future years because of the development time needed to put projects into service.
