Historic rehabilitation tax credit; maximum amount of tax credit. Increases from $5 million to $7.5 million, beginning in taxable year 2025, the maximum amount of the historic rehabilitation tax credit, including amounts carried over from prior taxable years, that may be claimed by a taxpayer in any taxable year. This bill is identical to SB 556. Read the Bill »


According to the fiscal impact statement, the bill to increase the maximum amount of the Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit has an unknown negative General Fund revenue impact beginning in Fiscal Year 2025. Based on data from previous years, the impact could range from approximately $5 million to $15 million annually. However, the actual impact will depend on the number of taxpayers affected by the current $5 million per taxpayer cap and their available credits or carryover credits. The long-term revenue impact of the bill will also depend on the number of additional projects authorized in response to the increase in the annual per taxpayer cap. Overall, the exact cost of the legislation is uncertain.

J.S. Webster writes:

It appears that the amendment took away any good that this bill could have done and is quite damaging now to the tax credit program. It would certainly impact shovel ready projects in place as well with a July 1 start date. 75 million is far too low of cap and would certainly hamper bank spending and cause uncertainty with lending. Seems bad for business and lending in an already tough environment.
