TAX CREDIT PROJECTS

The single most important financial tool to aid in historic preservation projects is the federal rehabilitation investment tax credit.  This program has funded billions of dollars worth of rehabilitation across the country since it began in 1981. Steven McQuillin & Associates has assisted hundreds of private property owners in obtaining the credit.  Projects include the following:

  • GE Lighting Nela Park.  Since 1988 Steven McQuillin has served as historic preservation consultant on over $30 million in rehabilitation projects.  Nela Park is the headquarters of GE Lighting and this campus-like complex is America’s first industrial park. McQuillin prepared a preservation management plan for Nela Park that has guided work there for over ten years.

  • Dillard's Department Store.  Consultant since 1985 on $20 million renovation to Dillard's Department Store on Cleveland's Public Square

Federal Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit

This federal incentive consists of a federal income tax credit of 20% of the cost of major rehabilitation work. In order for this property to become eligible for the 20% federal rehabilitation investment tax credit, it must
     (1) be certified on the National Register of Historic Places;
     (2) meet the U. S. Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation; and
     (3) upon completion, be documented to demonstrate that the work has been
          carried out as proposed.
