Rehabilitating Historic Properties for State and Federal Tax Credits Manual

State and federal tax law currently provides attractive incentives for the rehabilitation of historic and older buildings. These special benefits encourage revitalization of historic districts as well as individual buildings. To qualify for the federal tax incentives, requirements of both the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior (through the National Park Service) must be met. To qualify for the state tax incentives, requirements stipulated in Oklahoma Statute OS68-2357.41 must be met. The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is the initial point of contact for applicants and participates in the review of proposed rehabilitation projects. The Technical Preservation Services branch of the NPS represents the agency responsible for certifying historic structures and rehabilitation work. For more information, contact Jennifer Bailey at 405/522-4479 or jbailey@okhistory.org.
