Tax Credit Workshops for Homeowners

Bona Thompson Memorial Center - 5350 East University Avenue, Indianapolis, 46219

July 16-18 free historic tax credit workshop instructs homeowners and business owners the benefits of living in a Historic District.

Living and working in historic districts offers tax incentives for rehabilitation and renovations to historic properties

Preservation Pays: Historic Tax Credit Workshops on July 16-18 will inform homeowners and businesses of the benefits and tax incentives available to historic districts listed on the National Register for Historic Places. The event is a series of three free workshops. Participants may attend one, two, or all three.

Many people assume that they will have restrictions placed on their property or their property taxes will increase due to living in a historic district. As a result, historic districts receive a bad reputation. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

The Irvington Historical Society is dedicated to the preservation of the greater Irvington community and Indianapolis. As a way to help encourage historic preservation, the Irvington Historical Society created a three-day tax credit workshop to educate and encourage historic property owners to use tax incentives to make renovations and repairs to preserve their properties. The preservation of properties creates jobs and is one of the nation’s most successful and cost-effective community revitalization programs.
