Historic Preservation – Colorado’s Latest Tax Credit

Through 2029, owners of historically significant commercial buildings may earn up to $1M per year in Colorado income tax credits for rehabilitation work on their buildings. The Historic Preservation Tax Credit program is managed jointly by the Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) and History Colorado.

This tax credit promotes revitalizing historic buildings in Colorado for commercial use. To qualify, the building must be a Certified Historic Structure that is at least 50 years old. Certified Historic Structures may be listed on the National Register of Historic Places, State Register of Historic Places, or by a certified local government (CLG). Qualified applicants can be Colorado taxpayers or an entity exempt under section 501(c) of the internal revenue code.
