The West Virginia State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will present a training session on the Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit program at the Wheeling City Council Chambers, 1500 Chapline Street, on Thursday, Jan. 4 at 5:30 p.m. The program is hosted by the Wheeling Historic Landmark Commission. The session is free and open to the public.
The training session will include a presentation on the changes to the tax credit program that were passed by the West Virginia State Legislature in October. Those changes include an increase from 10 percent to 25 percent in the Commercial Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit. Participants at the training session will learn about additional changes made to the tax credit program, new requirements for the program and an explanation of the program’s financial incentives.
