Owners of historic buildings are eligible for tax credits under state and federal programs for historic properties. Credits are based on qualified expenditures on historic properties, and are direct credits to your state and/or federal income tax obligation.

Archetype can manage the application, approval, compliance, and inspection processes that are required by the residential and commercial tax credit programs.
