Maryland Historic Revitalization Tax Credit Program
Embrace the Digital Revolution! The Maryland Historical Trust is bringing the
historic revitalization tax credit application process online.
Starting August 7, 2023, historic revitalization tax credit applications for this
year's competitive commercial tax credit round, and any
federal applications, must be submitted electronically. MHT will accept
applications using a secure system via a Microsoft Teams channel. MHT will also
accept electronic payments for review fees through a secure payment system. If
you are planning on applying for the competitive commercial tax credit, please
contact MHT Tax Credit staff at email@example.com to get started with a Microsoft Teams channel.
Updated applications for the competitive commercial program will be available on
August 1st, 2023. Instructions for how to submit an electronic application will
be posted at the same time.
MHT will transition state small commercial and state homeowner historic revitalization tax credit applications to electronic submissions
by November 1, 2023. Stay tuned for news on updated applications and instructions!
The purpose of state and federal preservation tax incentives is to encourage private sector investment in the
rehabilitation and re-use of historic buildings and to promote investment in local economies.
If you own a certified historic property in Maryland, you may have the opportunity to earn a state
income tax credit on qualified rehabilitation expenditures. Whether you are planning to rehabilitate
your primary or secondary residence or a commercial property, there are state incentives that may help. Select a
project type for more information.
