NPS AMENDS HISTORIC PRESERVATION CERTIFICATION PROCEDURES

Thursday, May 26, 2011 - 7:00AM

The National Park Service (NPS) today issued a final rule that amends its procedures for obtaining historic preservation certifications for rehabilitating historic structures. Individuals and corporations must obtain these certifications to be eligible for historic tax credits (HTCs). The final rule, published in today’s Federal Register, removes outdated references to the Internal Revenue Code; replaces references to regional offices with its Washington Area Services Office; requires NPS to accept appeals for denial of certain certifications; and removes the certification fee schedule from the regulation. The final rule goes into effect on June 27.

Tune in to the May 31 Tax Credit Tuesday podcast to hear Michael J. Novogradac, CPA, discuss the final rule and its significance to the HTC community.
