The Preservation League of New York State Tax Credit Workshop was held this afternoon in the United Methodist Church in Liberty. The workshop event was co-sponsored by the Sullivan County Division of Planning and Community Development, the Town of Liberty, Sullivan Renaissance and NYS Senator John J. Bonacic
Liberty Town Supervisor Brian Rourke opened the workshop which was followed by information on tax credits for those owning commercial properties in historic districts and on the National Historic Register. Frances Gubler from the Preservation League of New York State; Julian Adams & Kath LaFrank from the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation; and Dadras Architects all lended their expertise on how Liberty might invest in rehabilitating our historic places.
The Preservation League invests in people and projects that champion the essential role in community revitalization, sustainable economic growth, and the protection of our historic buildings & landscapes.
Owners of historic properties may be eligible for 20% federal and 20% state historic preservation income tax credits for rehabilitation projects. So….before ripping and tearing an old building that may have historic significance and be eligible for tax credits…. give their office a call before it’s too late and the integrity of your building is altered! 518-462-5658 x-10 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
