State Historic Preservation Office Webinar Will Focus on the Historic Preservation Tax Credit
OKLAHOMA CITY — On Friday, November 17, from 10 a.m.-noon, the State Historic Preservation Office will offer a free webinar entitled “The Historic Preservation Tax Credit: A Case Study.” Sara Werneke, tax program coordinator and historic preservation architect with the SHPO, will be the featured presenter.
Knowing what should be in a Historic Preservation Tax Credit project submission can be daunting. Even knowing where to start can be overwhelming. In this workshop, Sara Werneke will use a case study of an actual tax credit project that successfully went through the process and is a certified rehabilitation. This webinar will follow the project from start to finish to see what worked and what did not work as it adhered to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.
